Kids & Toddler Beach Day Play
The beach is full of fun in the sun and loads of opportunity for sensory play. Between the sand and water experience there are loads of possibilities. Things like raking, shoveling, gathering water and kicking balls around all develop fine and gross motor skills as well as sensory experience through play.

Beach & Summer Essentials
Lets face it, every summer we all look at our shelves of beach towels and summer chairs and think - how can we simplify all this!? For those of us with small kids, the more functioning equipment we have that can be quickly assembled and dried out is a score! Here are our favorite summer essentials that can make your life a little easeir and you can focus on creating magical beach days and vacation memories all summer long.
Beach Towel: This large over the top, sand-proof beach towel is perfect for family beach time. Fitting up to 7 adults and is quick drying which makes it great for packing up quickly.
Adult Beach Chairs: Whats great about these beach chairs is that its not just for the beach! They can easily be used for gardening, camping or any other outdoor activity you could use an easily foldable and portable chair.
Ostrich on your back: If sitting on the ground isn't your type of thing, then these beach chairs may be right for you! The Ostrich chair even comes equipped to carry on your back freeing up your hands for other things (like beach toys!) and how clever it is to have a little face hole for you to keep enjoying your favorite book while tanning your back.
Kids Chairs- I don't know about you, but my kids are obsessed with Melissa & Doug toys. So naturally we were so excited to see these adorable octopus children's beach chairs that make any trip to the beach with little that much more special. They are fun, lightweight, foldable and come with a cup holder.
Beach Tent by NXONE - Ill admit we never even considered buying an open tent until we had kids. Now we can't live without it! Nxone makes this wonderful, flexible and durable tent that's great for shade or privacy on the beach. At a $45 price point its a steal!
If you're looking for something more like a canopy tent for the beach then look no further than the Sun Ninja Popup.
