It’s hot. So hot. And what we like to do when it’s this hot is splash in the pool. But before we get in the pool, we need a beach bag with Banana Boat sunscreen.
Sunscreen is essential for summer. Nothing kills the fun like a burn and damaging rays. I feel confident applying Banana Boat products on my family. I really love that Banana Boat has a great spray-on sunscreen for kids, Kids Free SPF 50 Clear Spray, which I picked up when I went to Walmart. I was excited to see that a sample of the Kids Sunscreen Stick was included with it. Score! I also grabbed the Men’s SPF 30 Clear Spray for my guy as well as their Protect & Hydrate 50 Lotion, which also comes in a Protect & Hydrate 50 Spray form. To make our bag complete when we’re all in motion, I also need to get Banana Boat’s Sport SPF 50 Clear Spray and Men’s SPF 50 Lotion.
While sunscreen is the star of our beach bag and pool experience, we also need a few other items to make it complete.
Our Beach Bag Essentials
1. Beach Towels – It goes without saying that you’re going to need to dry off. The larger the beach towel, the better in my opinion.
2. Flip Flops – You need footwear that is easy to get on and off when you go in and out of the pool.
3. Chapstick – Your lips need hydrated and protected, too.
4. A good book or tablet – Because mom needs something to do, too, while she’s watching the kids and hopefully not getting splashed on.
5. Camera – To capture those fun memories.
6. Floaties – They may not actually be able to fit in a beach bag, but my kids love their floaties and the pool just isn’t as fun without toys in the water to play with.
This, of course, is what we need since our little pool is here at home. If you’re out then I’d throw in some light snacks and bottles of water. The pool, though, is the only way I can get my kids to go outside in the scorching sun. And stay outside, happily splashing and swimming, all afternoon in the heat like it’s not a problem at all. Thankfully, I have some great sunscreen on hand, for all of us. With Banana Boat and the pool, it really is going to be the #BBBestSummer!
