What To Pack For The Beach and Holiday Bundle Giveaway


The beach hasn't always been my favourite place to visits, as I can't stand the sand. The girls aren't overly keen when they arrive but the longer they are there, the more they enjoy it. We try to visit the beach at least two or more times a year, if we can. All depending on the weather. I always prepare a beach bag(s) when we go to the beach for the day.

Sun Lotion - Make sure you apply sun lotion on the children and yourself before going out of the house and again when you arrive at the beach. Ideally, the childrens sun lotion should be 50+. Make sure that the sun lotion isn't out of date. It may be best to buy a new sun lotion each year.

Towels - Lots of towels. A towel each and then a 2 or 3 spare so you can sit down.

Swim Suits - These are the best clothing for the beach, and you or your kids could take a visit to the sea too.

Baby shade - If you have a young baby or toddler then you could buy a sun shaded tent to keep them out of the heat and prevent them getting burnt.

Drinks - Usually we all visit the beach when it's hot, so it may be best to bring plenty of water for everyone.

Snacks - If your planning to stay on the beach all day then you could pack some snacks and small meals for the day. As usually, cafes and restaurant near a beach a pretty pricey!
