As the summer sun is heating up, we are so excited to get out and have fun in the sun! Even though the days are longer, it seems like the summer flies by before you know it! So with that in mind we have rounded up some of our very favorite Must Have Items for Summer. We know how precious these warm days are, and these hot items will help you get the very most out of your summer fun!
Whether you spend your summers camping, at the beach, at the zoo or out in the garden, the most important thing is spending time with loved ones and making lasting memories. That is why we have picked out the best items that will make your summer easier, safer, or just plain more fun! These summertime essentials are sure to be a hit, and make this summer memorable for years to come.
Before you head out for any summer fun, one of the most important things you can do to protect the skin of yourself and your little ones is to apply sunscreen. We love the sunscreen stick from the Honest Company for it’s ease of application and for how long it lasts, but it is also great to throw in a swim bag and go!
Speaking of swim bags, is there anything more annoying that reaching into your beach bag and realizing that everything has gotten second-hand soaked from your trunks? That won’t be an issue anymore with our wet/dry bag! With two compartments to keep wet items seperate from dry items and 19 color options, this adorable wet/dry bag is the perfect addition to any summer bag! It is even perfect for storing muddy or sandy shoes- just rinse it out when you get home!
With all of this discussion of getting dirty, we just have to bring up our favorite summer accessories for little helpers- the Melissa and Doug Garden Tool Belt. What could be cuter than a little one learning about plants and veggies? Any little girl or boy would be so happy to have their own set of garden tools that are just their size!
If your little one has other interests, Melissa and Doug have got them covered! Do you have a budding entomologist on your hands? Let them get up close and personal with the Sunny Patch Bug House. If you are headed to the beach, the Clicker Crab Beach Pail set is a great way to encourage sensory play for kids of all ages! Older kids can enjoy the building properties of sand, while little ones will enjoy the textural sensations. We carry a wide variety of Sunny Patch Summer Toys from Melissa and Doug that are sure to make this summer a memorable adventure for little ones!
If you have a little girl in your life who loves to dress up and be a little glamorous, then we have got you covered! In addition to all of the fabulous tutus, fairy wings and jewelry sets that we already carry (and love!) we are so excited to now be carrying Piggy Paint– a safe line of beauty products for those fancy little fingers and toes!
Once those nails are beautiful, it is time to show them off! We can’t think of a better way than to toss on an adorable swing top dress set and pair it with a cute set of barefoot sandals! Is there anything more summery than a cute little ruffly dress? The frilly bloomers are just to die for, and with the wide variety of colors available in our barefoot sandals you are sure to match up the perfect outfit for playing in the sand or frolicking in the grass! Don’t forget- we offer both premade barefoot sandals and Barefoot Sandal DIY Kits!
Now that you have a few ideas on what needs to be included in your summer bag, it is time to pack up and hit the road for some summertime fun! The only thing left to do is make the road trip playlist! So that is our list of must have items for summer, but we would love to hear from you!
