3. Oversized Beach Blanket

Comes in 3 different sizes and can fit up to 7 people-  but still fits in a small travel bag. Plus sand proof AND water resistant.

Keep your little one secure while their toes are in the sand. If they’re still not ready for a beach chair, this floor seat is perfect.

10. Soft Cooler

Instead of lugging a huge cooler, this is great for snacks and some drinks for a beach day.

This one has a shoulder strap and many pockets.  

11. Insulated Water Bottle

Hydration is key when you’re at the beach and these insulated water bottles will keep water cool for longer, are spill proof, and have an easy hold.

They are perfect for all types of outdoor outings!

12. Sunscreen

Gotta lather up! This sunscreen is SPF 50+, water resistant up to 80 minutes, reef friendly, free of harsh chemicals, and vegan.

It’s also easy to apply which reduces the time you’ll have to deal with a squirming toddler!

13. Sun Hat

Cover up as much skin as you can! A sun hat is essential to protect a toddler’s face, ears, and neck from the sun.

This one is lightweight, breathable, and has a chin strap so it doesn’t fall off.

14. Rash Guard

Rash guards are key to protecting toddlers’ skin from the sun, bug bites, and scrapes or scratches.

This one is great quality, lightweight, dries fast, and comes in many different colors.

15. Swimsuit for Girls

If rash guards aren’t stylish enough for your girl, a long sleeve swimsuit is a great alternative!

This one will cover them up (just make sure to spray those legs!), it has UPF 50+ sun protection, a zip-up and snap closure to make sure it stays put, and it comes in adorable designs.  

16. Swim Trunks Set for Boys

If you’re looking for swim trunks and a rash guard, this one is adorable, has UPF 50+ sun protection, and has both an elastic waistband and tie up for a snug fit.

17. Water Sandals

Protect those little feet from hot sand, rocks, and whatever else can appear in the sand.

These sandals come with a rubber sole, breathable cutouts, and protects their toes.

18. Swim Vest

I bought these for both of my boys and they both loved them.

The vests come in many different fun patterns too.  

19. Reusable Swim Diaper

Instead of buying the cheap disposable ones, these are well-made, absorb liquids really well, and you can use it over and over. 

20. Waterproof Baby Carrier

This waterproof carrier will let you go into the water with your little one while keeping your hands free.

21. Water Float

Perfect when you want to bring baby in the ocean or pool with you. 

My kids loved kicking their feet when they were in it. The shade is helpful too. 

22. Beach Towels

You can’t (or shouldn’t) get in the water if you don’t have a towel to dry you off! These beach towels are thick, huge, and they dry quick.

You can also get them in a colorful variety pack, so everyone gets their own color, or just stick to one color.  

23. Beach Towel Poncho

Not only are these ponchos so cute, but they are super soft and absorb water well.

They are literally the only way my toddler will actually keep a towel on to dry off too!


24. Ice Cream Sand Toy Set

Bought it because I thought it was cute and now my boys fight over who can play with it.

It’s a HUGE hit and the pieces are well made.

25. Collapsible Sand Buckets

Great for travel, these buckets collapse and come with a mesh carrying bag. They’re great quality too. 

26. Sand Toy Truck Set

This tractor and dump truck are HUGE hits on the beach with kids. My kids can spend the whole afternoon playing with just this set!

They are also great for the sand box too, so you can get more use out of them.
