Friday Favorites - Summer Essentials for Kids
There are just a few items we don’t think we could summer without! When our backpacks are well packed for what’s to come, we know we’ll enjoy the day to the absolute fullest. We’re sharing our favorites to help you pack up and adventure on with your family this summer.
1 \ Ray-Ban New Wayfarer Junior. Sunglasses are a must, for walks around the hood, bike rides, and everything in between. It’s important to protect those little eyes from harmful UV rays, dirt and dust, and they’ll look cool doing it. We love this timeless style for both, boy and girls.
2 \ Native Shoes, The Jefferson. The most versatile shoe for rain, shine or jumping through mid-summer puddles. No matter what fun the day finds, we love that they clean up in a snap.
3 \ Supergoop! Sunny Screen. With the amount of time we spend outside during the summer months, we’re serious about sun protection. We love this formula with it’s easy spray application and clean ingredients.
4 \ Stasher Silicone Snack Bag. We love teaching our kids how to be mindful of how we care for our environment. It doesn’t hurt that these great snack bags come in every color of the rainbow, too!
5 \ Wanderwild Backpacks. Every great adventure starts with a well packed bag. Not too small and not too large (which means never too heavy!) and easily carried by each child. Our kids feel pride when they pack up for the day and have everything they need right at their fingertips.
6 \ REI Co-op Groundbreaker Rain Jacket. You’ll always find a rain jacket and an extra set of clothes, when we pack up for the day. We opt for adventure and memory making, over worrying about getting wet and it makes our laid back mood extra easy when we know our kids are prepared for whatever may come!
7 \ Yumbox Panino. We envision dining al fresco becoming a regular part of our summer. We love Yumbox for packing lunches on the go. Plus, they fit perfectly inside our Wanderwild lunchboxes.
You know we love a product that comes perfectly personalized! These darling hats proudly display a first or last initial for that add a touch of fun.
10 \ Camelbak Eddy Water Bottle. These water bottles never fail us. We find the 20oz bottle to be the perfect size to sustain our kids for hours, without getting too heavy.
11 \ Wanderwild, Out to Lunch - As long as there are snacks, the adventure can last all day! Pack up a picnic in our insulated lunchbox. It’s oversized to fit a drink inside, your favorite bento box and a snack or two. We like to sneak treats and sweet notes in the outer zipper pocket for a fun surprise.
