Are your kids ready to hit the waters?
As a Mom, or parent, we always make it a point to have everything ready for them before they dip in the pool or sea water. I am definite that your checklist includes:
- Swim suits
- Hats and sunglasses
- Swimming rings and arm floaties
- Swimming Vest if needed
- Shampoo and soap
And the other items that should be in your bag if you are off to a swimming getaway are:
- Flip Flops
- pocket money / coins
- baby powder
- insect repellent patches or lotion especially for overnight stay
- umbrella or kiddie tent
- plastic bags for wet items
And the list goes on but of course, we only bring what we really need. I have experienced to have packed a lot that there were items that shouldn't have been included and I end up exhausted carrying a heavy bag.
Yesterday, my daughters had fun "swimming" in a large basin. LOL!
The small inflatable pool we have won't keep the air that long anymore so they end up using the basin instead. My elder daughter is just so excited to hit a real pool saying they won't fit in just one basin. Ha! Ha!
I am planning to bring them to a resort near us instead, in case our friends won't have any plans for a summer outing again this year.
