So you're going on a beach trip this Summer and not sure on what to pack in your beach bag? Well here at Little Hotdog Watson we love a fun filled day at the beach so we've put together a list of some essential items to pack for your next seaside adventure. 

1. Your Little Hotdog Watson Hat 🧢

An essential for any beach trip is your Little Hotdog Watson hat! Not just a cute accessory, packed with our smart technology protective design including:

UPF 50+ Super strength sun protection to protect young skin from harsh UVA (ageing) + UVB (burning) rays to factor 50+ This lasts for the lifetime of your hat.

2. Towel ☀️

A must-have for a family adventure to the beach is the Dock & Bay Kids Beach Towel. Available in a range of different colours this towel is compact, lightweight, sand-free and includes a handy pouch to keep your towel and travel accessories all in one place.

3. Beach Activities 🏖️

Don’t forget the classics like a bucket and spade for building the ultimate sandcastles this Summer! A bucket is also handy for collecting all those shells and other beach treasures in. We love this Foldable, Silicone Bucket from Liewood. The foldable feature makes it easy to both store away at home and transport on travels.

A beach ball or frisbee is great for a game of football or volleyball on the beach. If it’s a dry day with a breeze, why not try flying a kite or even a game of bat and ball with your little one? A great way to build skills like hand-eye coordination plus it keeps the active!

We love this Bat and Ball set by Sunny Life. Comes with a handy zipper case so it is easily transported from home to beach!

4. Snacks! 🍦

Snacks are essential with all the running around and splashing in the sea. The little ones are going to build up an appetite quickly so the more snacks, the better! Why not pack a picnic or take a stroll to get an ice cream? 

5. UPF +50UV protective swimwear 👙

For ultimate protection from the sun, try UPF +50UV protection swimwear. This pink floral UV suit from newbie is not only cute but has UPF +50UV protection and protection from UVA+UVB.

There's nothing quite like the sound of the waves crashing onto the shore and the feeling of sand between your toes.
