Summer can be an incredible time for kids to get outside and enjoy the warm weather, explore the outdoors, and learn new skills like swimming. Encouraging these adventures is a gift in and of itself but keeping them safe is always in the forefront of our minds these days. Here are our top picks for adding some peace of mind as we let the kids enjoy their summer!
Sunscreen – you can never have enough sunscreen. The kids may give you grief, eye rolls or scoffs when you go to reapply, but it will be worth it to not have to deal with a sunburn! Our favorite brand is Blue Lizard, the bottle changes color in the sun which is fun, and proof to the kids that the sun’s rays do have an effect.
Floaties – For any kid learning to swim these are a great tool to start the process. They are not however a substitute for supervision, kids need to be supervised at all times when they are by a pool or body of water.
Swim shirts/Rash guards – like sunscreen these shirts help deflect the intensity of the sun’s rays. If you are spending time by the water the sun is hitting you from above and bouncing back at you from the reflection off the water, so you are getting double the UV.
Bugspray – Mosquitos, horseflies and ticks are out in droves. Protect your little one from bites and stop they itch before it starts! Always follow the directions on the bottle, most bugsprays should not be sprayed directly on the skin.
The bug bite thing – If your kid does get unlucky and step on a bee, you will want to have this device. It may seem like an “as seen on TV” product, but it works. It can turn a bee sting from a four hour on and off crying fest to an almost non-event!
Helmets, knee pads, and elbow pads – Summer can be a great time for kids to try new things like biking, roller blading, or skateboarding. Protecting their beautiful limbs is crucial!
First Aid Kits and Ice Packs – Bumps and bruises will happen as our little adventurers explore the world around them. Make sure you are ready with their favorite character boo-boo bandage.
Water bottles – It may not seem like a safety issue but in these warmer months we need to be sure our kids are getting enough hydration. Our favorite bottles are metal so there are no concerns about BPA.
Masks – Our new normal as we try to combat this virus. They learn from watching us so show them how to wear the mask correctly, and make it fun for them by letting them pick out their own mask.
Keeping our kids safe, well and healthy is a parent’s biggest priority. They may not look at these items as gifts today, but they may thank you for them one day. Here is hoping that your summer is filled with magic and delight!
