It’s starting to warm up and you can almost feeeel spring in the air. Summer adventures are just around the corner!
Because we are mums who have been there and know what it’s like, we have the perfect mum hack for you...A Summer Ready Adventure Kit!
Hear us out… basically it’s a box full of everything you need for all those sun-soaked summer adventures. Genius right? The best part is that you store it in the car so that you don’t have to think of anything extra when you’re rushing out the door. Whether it’s a picnic in the park with friends, a swim in the ocean, or a relaxing day by the pool… your summer full of spontaneous fun awaits. Here’s what you need:
Babiators: These sunglassesare more than a cute fashion accessory (but can we please talk about how cuuuuute they are!) Babiators sunnies provide 100% protection from the harm UV rays can cause little eyes. No more squinting in full sun either, your little one will be able to enjoy any adventure in total comfort. Babiators are made to last and virtually indestructible.
Solar Buddies: We all know how important sun safety is especially in Australia where the sun’s rays are proven to be extra damaging. But getting that sunscreen applied can just be such a pain! Sandy hands and impatient children…. it can be the stuff of nightmares. Solar buddies are the handy tool that will solve all of your sunscreen woes! Simply fill your solar buddy with your favourite sunscreen and glide that sun protection right on. No mess, no fuss and we guarantee your little one will want to give it a go as well!
Towel: The most versatile item in your Summer Ready Adventure Kit is a towel! A towel can also be a great substitute feeding cover, handy change mat, or quick shade from the sun! They’re perfect for a quick dry after a swim in the sea or to lounge on by the pool. We love the Beach People towels because they are just the right size, are super light weight, and are sand-free.
Hat: Wide brimmed hats are recommended for children of all ages to protect against sun exposure and nothing beats the coverage that Bedhead hats provide! They are UPF50+ with anti-flop technology so that it won’t cover your child’s eyes! They are pool friendly and chlorine resistant, making it easy to stay sun safe in the water as well.
Sun-Safe swimmers: You never know when you’ll want to escape that summer sun with a dip in water so making sure you always have swimmers on hand is a must! We love rashies by Bedhead because they are UPF50+, offering your little one optimum sun protection. They are so easy to put on with a zipper at the back, which makes getting changed a breeze! Beadhead rashies are soft and stretchy and chlorine resistant.
Snacks: The most surefire way to ruin an outdoor outing is hangry children! Every mama knows that an adventure without snacks is a disaster waiting to happen. You don’t have to stress about leaving the house without snacks if you have some packed in your adventure kit! The key is choosing snacks that won’t be ruined by heat. Some easy options are: Pretzels, Popcorn or any cracker style food, Muesli Bars and dried fruit.
So there you have it, a Summer Ready Adventure Kit that will ensure that you and your little cuties won’t miss out on fun in the sun. It’s so easy to put together and will save you time and frustration, creating ease so that you can make the most of those magic summer days. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without it!
