The recent sunshine has given us all a taste for Summer! You may have brought your little one to the beach for the very first time, dipped their toes in the cold salt water and watched as they grabbed handfuls of sand in complete amazement – It’s one of the best days out for the entire family and it is free!!
Here are our 5 handy, helpful tips for family days at the beach!
Tip #1 – Bring the shade with you! Always pack an umbrella so that your little one can chill out in a cool spot and out of direct sunlight. Sunglasses, hats and light layers of clothing are also incredibly important to protect their eyes from strong UV rays and protect their delicate skin.
Tip #2 – We love this pic!
This is such a genius idea and will ensure all picnics, valuables and tiny toes are kept sand free! Set this up at the beach and you will be the envy of all parents!!
Tip #3 – When your little one is worn out from racing to the water, dashing through the sand and it’s time to pack up – grab the baby powder!
Lay out a towel, dry them off and apply baby powder to remove any excess moisture and that uncomfortable sticky-sandy feeling. You’ll then be able to easily get those little socks and shoes back on and hit the road!
Tip #4 – Pack a picnic & keep it cool! Store your beach day feast in a cooler bag to keep everything nice & fresh along with a pot of Pipin Pear for your little beach bunny. Our Banana Blue is loved by all ages, doesn’t need to be heated and is delicious on it’s own or swirled through natural yoghurt – the perfect beach day dish!
Tip #5 – This is the most important tip. When purchasing sunscreen for your children. Always reach for the highest factor (SPF 30 – 50) but also check the UVA rating and ensure it is 5 stars for best protection.
