I like to think I’ve always been an organized person, but now as a Mom I have to always be a step ahead, especially when it comes to packing up and going somewhere- like the beach! The beach is a place our whole family enjoys. We pack a picnic to snack all day and take along plenty of toys and games so everyone always has something to do, especially when we’re taking a break from the ocean. One of our favourite beach activities is to ride one of the local peddling pelican cruiser bikes. As a family we get to ride around the beach, having a few races here and there too. The older kids can ride their own bikes but the smaller kids can be on the back on an adults bike thanks to some nifty bike accessories. Not many people think of kiring a bike at the beach, but it’s a really fun activitiy for all to enjoy. Plus, no need to lug extra equipment when you can even rent bike locks and helmets! One trick I have also learnt is to always keep a bag packed and ready, so all we have to do when we want to go somewhere is grab it & go. See below for what I keep in my Ready to go Beach Bag!
1. Plastic basket- Dollar Tree Canada I know I said ‘bag’ but these are great to put everything in- plus it’s easy to wash at the end of a beach day 2. Sunscreen- Alba Botanica You can’t go anywhere in the Summer without the stuff & I like this brand’s natural products. 3. Wipes- Seventh Generation Good to have on hand to clean up spills and wipe sticky ice- creamy hands (and help wipe off sand too!). 4. Outdoor blanket- JJ Cole You need something to lie on at the beach & I love how easy to clean & travel- friendly this one is- it’s one of my most- used gifts I received at my baby shower. 5. Towel- Carter’s Canada I love hooded towels for little ones and how cute is this flamingo one??? 6. Flip flops- Old Navy Canada A Summer staple, nothing to add! 7.Water shoes- Carter’s Canada Perfect to protect little feet from walking over rocks & sand. 8. Sunnies- Carter’s Canada You’ve got to protect those little eyes and why not do it in style? 9. UV Rash guard bathing suit- Carter’s Canada I love the built- in UV protection & long sleeves- these are my fav bathing suits for Ari. 10. Sun hat- Old Navy Canada For added protection from the sun & heat I love wide- brimmed hats 11. Wet bag- Little Alligator To bring home all the wet gear – just toss the contents & bag in the wash when you get home!
