Checklist for Your Family Beach Trip

Heading to the beach this summer? If you're like me, you always forget something. Use this checklist when packing:

  • Large beach bag.
  • Sunscreen Lotion, preferably SPF 15. (higher for the little ones - and your husband's bald head!)
  • Lip balm.
  • Lotion - the sun and salt water really dry out that skin.
  • A beach umbrella if you have one.
  • Adequate changes of clothing for the family, including shoes.
  • Towels.
  • Wash cloths in plastic bags or wipes in containers.
  • A good book or two!
  • Beach blankets.
  • Pails and shovels.
  • Frisbee and beach ball for the kids.
  • Sunglasses.
  • Brimmed hats for everyone.
  • A cooler to store lunch, snacks, juices, water, and sodas.
  • Your iPod.
  • Beach chairs.
  • Plastic bags (don’t forget to save one for the kids to store their collected sea shells.)
  • Cell phone.
  • Camera (disposable).
  • First Aid Kit.
  • Life jackets and flotation devices.
  • Put cell phone and money pouch in plastic bag and keep in cooler. This way, you don’t have to bring a purse or worry about it being stolen.

Have a great time...and be safe!
