We enjoy spending time together as a family and we have a lot of tips to share. This post is sponsored by Chevrolet Traverse.
There’s nothing better than enjoying a hot summer day at the beach. Growing up in California, some of my fondest summer memories were spent at the beach. Long, hot days with plenty to do, cool drinks and delicious snacks. It’s something I want my children to remember growing up, so we like to spend time at California’s beautiful beaches.
The biggest struggle is getting ready and getting everyone out of the house. The best tip for creating more fun this summer is staying prepared.
We like to just get up and go, spur of the moment, just head out for some fun. One thing we like to do is keep snacks and drinks ready to go. Non-perishable items are best for this and this ensures that we can just grab and go. We’ll never hear “I’m huuuunnngrryy” on the way to the beach again!
In the car you might also experience the “I’m soooooo bored!” A rear entertainment system is essential for trips in the car. Headphones easily allow them to hear their entertainment. Keeping a small bag of books and coloring books with washable markers is also another great way to pass time in the car. Keeping the kids and parents stress free all the way to their destination.
We also keep hand wipes easily accessible to our children for when they decide to have a snack during their movie. This keeps our hands and the car clean and is a must in our car.
Another great tip for the beach is keeping all your beach gear easily accessible. We have a large bag with holes to release any sand that holds our boogie boards, sand toys and even beach chairs.
Having a bag for small sandcastle building supplies also allows us to just grab and go. A small cooler for cold water and fresh foods allow us to stay and play all day! When we are ready to leave, we just easily pack up the back of the car and head home. A rubber cover keeps the trunk safe from the sand and we can easily just dump it out when we arrive home.
The best tips for having a stress-free summer of fun is to stay prepared!
