Family Beach Day

Our family loves spending time in the water, whether it is at the pool, lake or beach! When we are at our cottage in the Poconos of Pennsylvania, we have access to indoor and outdoor pools, and are within walking distance of the lake. We also love spending time as a family on the beach. We are sharing some of our favorite essentials for family beach day items!

CGear: Sand-Free Tote Bag

Family Beach Day Items: bag

I love using this CGear navy stripe canvas sand-free tote bag. It is perfect as an everyday family bag, and especially as a beach bag. It is a large and durable tote bag with a sand-free base. It’s such an important feature for a family beach day bag. We can even fit ALL the other items from this list in the bag!

Coleman Beach Shade Tent

We purchased this Coleman beach shade tent when Mabel was a baby. We have used it during every beach trip over the past 6 years. It is easy to set up, and a perfect size for our family. It is nice to have a shaded area to escape with the kids in the middle of the day, to sit, snack, or take naps. There is an extended front flap, and a large back window for ventilation, which lets the breeze through. And it all stores in a small bag!

Ro.Sham.Bo Baby: Family Sunglasses

Family Beach Day Items: sunglasses

Durable sunglasses are essential when you have kids. Ro.Sham.Bo Baby carries polarized sunglasses that are perfect for the entire family because they are flexible, bendable, and virtually unbreakable. They come in various sizes, for babies, toddlers, kids, and adults. They also have lots of colors to choose from. Here’s our personal picks: Tyler – adult size navy blue, Emily – adult size white, Mabel – junior size white, Matilda – junior size light blue, Margaret – baby size pink.

SandPal: Castle Builders Kit

Family Beach Day Items: beach toys

Our family loves building sand castles together! The Castle Builders Set by SandPal allows us to attempt to build the castle of our dreams. It can be used with sand, snow, mud or kinetic sand, and is endlessly creative. The set even comes with a mesh bag to tidy up all of the building items when we are finish constructing! You can use code TIDYDAD10 for 10% off the SandPal website, or order on Amazon!

Zip Top: Reusable Containers

Family Beach Day Items: snack containers

When packing for a family beach day, one of the most important items is snacks! We have the Zip Top Full Set of 8 Reusable Containers, which includes all 3 sizes of cups, 3 sizes of dishes, and 2 sizes of bags. The bags are made of food-grade resuable silicone, and they are dishwasher, freezer, and microwave safe. The best part is that they have a solid flat base, so they can stand up and stay open when you’re filling them up! Our girls love the Zip Top Baby Set of 4 Reusable Containers, which are smaller containers designed to fit in little hands and cup holders, and come in baby animal shapes! You can use code TIDYDAD15 for 15% off the Zip Top website, or order on Amazon!

ALVABABY: Wet Bags

Family Beach Day Items: wet/dry bags

I hate tossing dirty or wet towels, swimsuits, or diapers into our tote bag with other items. The ALVABABY wet/dry cloth bag is a multi-functional bag that has 2 zippered sections. Wet and dry sections can be kept separate, and the “wet” section is sewn and sealed for no wicking or leaking. The bags have a snap handle for easy carrying or hanging, or I can put our wet items in here and then toss the bag into our larger tote bag.

Babo Botanicals: Sunscreen

Family Beach Day Items: sunscreen

Every outdoor family beach day starts with sunscreen. Our current go-to is Babo Botanical’s Sheer Mineral Sunscreen in SPF 50. It comes in sheer mineral sunscreen lotion AND sheer mineral sunscreen spray. You can use code TIDYDAD for 20% off the Babo Botanical website, or order on Amazon!

About me

Hi, my name is Tyler Moore. My wife and I live with our three young daughters in a 700- square-foot apartment in New York City. I began my tidying journey when an early-30’s crisis invited me to reflect upon, challenge, and change my patterns of daily living. I quit my job as a school administrator, returned to teaching, and started Tidy Dad to help others tidy, simplify, and find joy in their lives. I firmly believe the tidying process can transform your life. I’d love for you to join me in exploring ways that tidying can make room for what’s important in life.
