Today is DAY 3 of this "Mommy Must Haves" series and even though it doesn't feel like it outside right now here on the Seacoast in New Hampshire summer will be here before we know it and I wanted to share some summer tips. Please excuse some of the really bad cell phone pictures but this is how I document our summer excursions to the beach and the lake and thought you would like to see these products in action. So here goes:
Summer "Mommy Must Haves"
These products will come in handy for any of you moms out there who have a mobile toddler. Charlianne was walking at 10 months and I needed to pull out all the stops with her. We had a great summer last year at the beach, the lake and just in our own backyard and I truly believe it was because of the following products:
ExerSaucers are great for keeping your toddler entertained while hanging out by the lake or the pool.
This pop up play yard was amazing for the beach and for just hanging out at home - she would play for hours with her toys in here! When we were at the beach and it was time to dry off and pack up, I could get all the sand off and stick her in there while I packed everything! LIFESAVER!
This pop up beach tent was a little tricky to learn to fold up but after a quick youtube video, it is my best friend for the beach! BONUS: For infants this is also great - I would lay in here with Charli and feed her then she would nap at the beach while the other kids played.
Between water parks, the lake and the beach my kids are ALWAYS in the water. They love the way that their puddle jumpers give them independance in the water and I feel safer around the water. It also gave my boys confidence when they were learning to swim.
5. Water Table
Toddlers LOVE water and a simple water table for the back deck is sure to bring water park fun to your own backyard.
These are just a few of my Toddler "Mommy Must Haves" and I hope that they help you enjoy the summer a little more with your active kiddos. I know that we have had a blast and can't wait for the weather to get warmer so we can head to the lake and enjoy the sun!
May and June are my favorite months to do photos at the beach because the weather is not too hot for kids and they are less crowded. If you are looking for a Seacoast New Hampshire Children's Photographer this spring or summer, contact me today, I would LOVE to document you making memories with your kids.
