Let’s plan a funfilled summer outing by deciding what to bring to the water park.
The goal is to bring everything you need… without bringing all of your earthly possessions along. If you have kids, this task can be next to impossible. We can tackle this hurdle together.
Try to stick to the basic needs. Purchasing a suntan lotion (like this bottle non-aerosol spray bottle of Kiss My Face SPF 50 Sunscreen)everyone can use will help keep the volume of bottles down in your bag. You can also help everyone dress in layers to avoid a huge pile-up of unnecessary clothes.
What to Bring to the Water Park
Towel Clips: Keep your designated lounge chairs and your towels secure with these handy towel clips. (They would be great for a trip to the beach too!)
Swimming Goggles: These swimming goggles are perfect to keep the chlorine away from eyes. They fit well and come in handy when the kids are ready to take a dip in the pool or a float around the lazy river.
Underwater Camera: Get some unique and fun photos and video clips with this waterproof camera. It comes in three different colors. Love the blue!
Waterproof Cell Phone Case: If you plan on keeping your cell phone out, this clear waterproof case is a great way to keep it safe while you enjoy the water park. This set comes in a pack of 2.
Lock Box: Dragging your valuables into the water park causes too much worry. Invest in one of these slim lock boxes that easily slide under the car seat to avoid any mishaps.
Flip Flops: Pack a pair of flip-flops to make a quick trip to the restroom or around the water park to round up the kids. There are so many styles and sizes on Amazon to choose from. Its a great one-stop shop for the entire family.
Water Shoes: Pick up a pair of these water shoes for the younger kiddos. They protect those little toes and don’t slip off like flip-flops.
Cabana Towels: Big, plush, striped towels. Perfect for a trip to the water park.
Kid’s Hooded Towel: Kids need a soft and cozy towel to dive into after swimming around like a fish all day.
Wave Runner Ball: A floating ball that skips over water. A fun (and small!) toy to take along to the water park.
Cover-Ups: Don’t forget a cover-up! Having one of these on hand at the water park makes it easy to get in and out of the water without having to dress and undress.
Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo & Conditioner Travel Size: Take advantage of the showers at the water park. Wash the chlorine away and nourish your hair before leaving for the day. It will make clean-up a snap.
Utility Wagon: There’s no need to carry everything in your arms to the water park. If you’ve already ditched the stroller, these wagons are a fantastic replacement.
Grab a large pool tote and you should be able to fit all of your items. If you have a younger kiddo, don’t give yourself too hard of a time, allow yourself to pack a bag just for her. Oh! These wet bags are a lifesaver. They contain the wet mess and allow for a super simple clean-up.
