Apply the sunscreen on your kid skin before you leave the house and reapply every two or three hours at the beach. Keep on reapplying it throughout the day as your little munchkin will keep on be in and out of water. Also, keep in mind to read the label for ingredients as your kid might have some allergy from one of its ingredients.

Water Shoes/ Footwear:

Everybody loves walking barefoot at the beach. But, how can be forget that in summer the sand gets Superhot and even it’s not possible to walk naked foot on rocks and stones as well. Thus, as you don’t want to hurt your toddlers delicate feet, you need to pack comfortable yet fancy water shoes or footwear for your kid so that it becomes easy for a toddler to move around.

    Everyone loves going to the beach but having the young ones does have its challenges. I really liked the idea of taking frozen grapes or blueberries, fresh fruit juice, etc to pack for kids because sometimes you don’t get such things at the beach.

    You have covered everything we need for kids when they go to the beach. Beachwear slippers and toys are very essential so are the toys to make sandcastles and a ball to throw into the sea. I think you missed out on blankets or rugs for laying on the sand. Umbrellas too area must, isn’t it?
