              For the Water Dancer

              If getting away to the beach is not in the cards this spring break with your kids, you can create magical waterworks right at home with a Giant Inflatable Rainbow Sprinkler. This perfectly portable, packable water toy weighs only three pounds and is excellent for small city patios or larger backyards. It provides hours of cool summer fun and is easy to stow away when not in use.

              For the Slim Aarons Photo Shoot

              Whether poolside, après bath, or at the beach, there may be nothing more luxurious than a refreshing dip, followed by snuggling into something cozy like a crisp Monogrammable Hooded Terry Robe from CeCe DuPraz or Minnow. It may look posh, but it has a multi-tasking work ethic made for spring break with kids. At the pool, a hooded towel is a smart solution for sun safety before SPF is applied; at the beach, it’s the perfect cover-up between sand and surf; and when the weather changes (because spring weather can be that way), it’s a welcome warming layer.

              For Sunglasses and Snacks

              A straw tote is the carry-all that brings its own youthful exuberance—along with any other essentials for a great day by the sea (or on deck at the pool). Try a whimsical shell shape (also in a mini version) to stash small beach toys and sun safety gear for kids; or a paperback, cash, keys, and cell phone for moms. Entice kids to carry their gear with a just-their-size monogrammed tote or tennis backpack.

                For the Golden Hour

                After the swimming, the snacks, and the sand throwing (or eating!), these candy-colored sand toys can stretch out family beach time while parents chill and sip a piña colada as the sun starts to set. With toys made for digging, squirting, and excavating, think of the beach as your personal sensory bin.


                Made in the Shade

                Whether it's a bucket or a visor, a strappy oversized sun hat, or a sporty baseball hat, babies and kids need a hat while out and about.

                While you might not leave the house without your shades, getting kids into the habit can be hard. Bendable, durable frames will last an entire trip, and sweet shapes and colors get mini excited. Polarized WeeFarers® and Babiators provide 100% UVA and UVB protection with impact-resistant UV400 polarized lenses.
