What to pack for a Family Beach Day
What to Pack for a Family Beach Day is in collaboration with Pitchi.
One thing I love about living in Newcastle is the close proximity we live to beaches.
We’re so close to Redhead, Merewether and Caves Beach amongst others – we can be at the beach within a 10-15 minute drive which is such a treat.
Taking the kids to the beach is great, Miss M loves the outdoors and we started her with swimming lessons when she was 6 months old.
Packing for a family beach day can take some real preparation though. Well packing for any day out with a baby and a 2 year old can be a challenge!
I’ve put together this free printable so you can ensure you have everything you need if you’re heading to the beach with your family. This also applies to family beach holidays of course too.
Need inspiration for buying things to take on a beach break? I’ve just discovered Pitchi. Pitchi is an innovative online selling space designed to help showcase, promote and sell new products brought to life by microbusinesses.
Products are showcased via videos and it’s a great place to discover new products from around the world.
I found these Knotty Towels on Pitchi here. They’re so colourful and really big so great for lying on the sand or wrapping up the kids after a dip in the sea.
Or how about this innovative sand-free beach Quicksand mat? It traps the sand underneath the mat – amazing! I’d love to test that out.
I’ve included a cooler in my checklist – somewhere to keep drinks, snacks and even your sunscreen cool and dry. This Cricket Cooler is pretty multi-purpose and great for a game with the kids!
A UV sunshade is a must for every family at the beach – I love this chic and functional one from Sunny Jim.
Or if you’re not close to a beach but have access to a swimming pool, how about relaxing with one of these Just Add Noodles pool floats. Although it might be more appropriate for a rare day at the pool without the kids J
These are the kind of products that you wouldn’t usually find in a store – it’s great to have access to such a wide range and to utilise the videos to actually see them in action too.
