It’s almost time to hit the beach. Less than three weeks & summer will officially start in our house! We are heading to the beach one of our first weeks of summer and the kids couldn’t be more excited. If there’s one place that everyone is happy…it is the beach. The kids spend all day swimming in the ocean & playing in the sand. And by bedtime, every single one of our kids is so tired that they actually go to bed without a struggle (which is rare in our house!). It does take some major preparation and organization to get ourselves packed and ready to head to the beach and/or pool. I am one of those moms who needs a list to get myself ready to go, so I decided to create a printable Beach Bag Checklist. Today, I am sharing this checklist to help get your family all set for beach time!
When I pack for the beach, I try to pack as light as possible. But with four kids, eight and under, it still means we have a lot to pack. Not only do we have to fill our beach bag, but we have to carry down some sort of shade (umbrella or beach tent), chairs for mom and dad, as well as a cooler packed full of food and drinks. Honestly, we look like a traveling circus heading to the beach or pool. First when you are packing for the beach, I recommend a giant beach bag. I am loving this new classic beach bag tote from Threaded.
Threaded carries a wide variety of beach bags, ranging from an extra large tote to a smaller size drawstring beach tote. Their bags are fun, functional, and come in a wide variety of prints. Some of the features that I love most about Threaded beach bags are:
- Water Resistant Lining. The lining of the beach bag is the same lining that you would see on outdoor blankets, diaper covers, bibs, mattress liners, and more. This means that it’s easy to clean & waterproof.
- Small Inside Pocket. On the inside of the beach bag, there is a small built-in pocket that can easily hold those things that you don’t want to lose. For me, this inside pocket is a great spot to throw my keys & iPhone so I don’t have to dig through the bag looking for these must-have items.
- The Size: As I said earlier, we have a lot to carry! With four kids, everyone wants to bring their own toys plus there is the beach necessities: sunscreen, goggles, diapers, and more. To carry all these items, I need a large bag to hit the beach. Threaded carries bags that are large & roomy, making space for lots of gear. Courtney says her bag is so big that she is pretty sure that she could carry her kids in it with all the gear!
To make sure you have all your beach necessities, make sure to print out our beach bag checklist…
