It’s the time of the year when we spend most of our days outdoors. When heading out for the day, there will be certain items that you will need to have on hand. Read on for a list of summer essentials that you should have with you on outings.
Summer Essentials – Must-Haves for Outdoor Activities
When you are planning a day out and will be in the sun for most of the day, you need to be prepared. If you have kids it is important to have these summer essentials handy at all times.
Sunscreen and Sunglasses
Sunscreen is the most important item to carry in a bag. It doesn’t matter if you have applied some before heading out, it needs to be reapplied. Sunglasses to keep the sun out of your eyes or even a hat will work and it will also help to keep your scalp from being burnt.
Filled Water Bottle and Cooler
Staying hydrated is important when you are outside in the heat. We usually fill up our water bottles and add a bit of ice. We also carry an extra bottle with water in our cooler bag. During our outings, we will look for water fountains to refill our bottles when needed. There are many places that have water bottle refilling stations.
Splash Pad and Pool Gear
When we plan a day out, we don’t always know what it may include. We grab a TTC day pass and out the door, we go. Our daughter loves water so we have to include her bathing suit and towels. We also bring chairs in our wagon so we can sit whenever and where ever we can.
