This is not your typical "what to pack for the beach with kids" list.  If you do not know to pack sunscreen or beach toys, you should not be going to the beach.  I have been living at the beach for over 20 years.  I have been a mother, even longer than that.  I am giving you the list of essentials, that I would never go to the beach without.  These item will definitely make your day and life easier.  Trust me...I know what I am talking about!



#1 Essential For The Beach

 The first item I recommend is  Water Sports Sand-Off Beach Sand Cleaner Wipe Off Mitt, Multi-Color .  This item is great at the beach.  We have used this for several years.  You just wipe off the sand with the mitt...and all the sand comes off.  This is even better than sticking your feet under the shower faucet on the boardwalk.  If you continue with that method, you will still have sand tracking to your car or inside your rental.

 It really is like magic.  I also used it when my girls had a sandbox in the backyard.I would not have a trail of sand in the house when I called them in for lunch.  Do not go to the beach with out this, it really is a life saver! 

# 2 Essential For The Beach

 The next item I highly recommend, is having a great blanket.  I know, most of you do the blanket dance.  You take all your bags or shoes and place them on each side of the blanket to hold the blanket down,,,am I correct?  Well this is a solution to all of your problems.  The Sand Free Beach Blanket-Fylina Oversized Waterproof Blanket Mat.  This mat is huge and not only is it waterproof, it is so easy to get the sand off.

 It comes with 4 anchor sticks...that really stay anchored in the sand.  As you can see...it is huge!

It also comes with a light weight bag.  Great for packing within all the items you carry to the beach.  And easy to put back in when it is time to leave.

The third item is essential for your beach vacation.  A fantastic towel for each person in your family.  We all have bought the towels at different stores...and we always thought a towel is a towel.  But the  Dock & Bay Beach Towel is the original quick dry and sand free beach towel.  I would not travel with out this amazing product.  This is no ordinary towel...it is fantastic!

 My girls love it...and so do I.  There is no sand on the towel.  Which keeps the car clean.  Also, it dries so quickly, which means no wet towels going back home or to your rental.  We all have seen the towels hanging off balconies of hotels and condos.  You never have to worry about that again! Which means, you can reuse it the next day!

It comes in its own bag...which is convenient for packing at the end of the day.  You have never seen a towel like this one...but you don't want to go to the beach or pool without it!

#4 Essential For The Beach

 The fourth item, should be a given.  But, I am going to tell you anyway.  You must stay hydrated while you are on the beach.  Preferably,  keep drinking water.  And make your children drink water too.  I always buy the small bottles of water, this way, there are not half filled bottles left in the cooler. 



#5 Essential For The Beach

Additional Information

 My final recommendation, bring snacks.  Now, anyone who knows me, knows my snack is always popcorn.  You can even read about it in my posting THE TOP 5 TIPS FOR AN EASY ROAD TRIP WITH KIDS. 


 But, back to the subject of snacks.  You don't want to bring snacks that are greasy.  The sun and grease do not like each other.  However, if you do not pack snacks, you will get the...Mom I'm Hungry....at least 20 times.  Which means you will be searching for food that is overpriced and not that healthy

That is why I always pack popcorn.  Our favorite is Gary Poppins Popcorn .
