These kids' hooded beach towels are certified UPF 50+ as well to keep your little one protected from the sun's UV rays. They come in a variety of fun prints for boys and girls and are so comfy you'll wish they had one in your size too.

Baby/Kid's Sunscreen

Sunscreen is often a forgotten beach accessory but it's super important! Make sure to pack it in your beach bag and put it within eyesight so you remember to reapply it. 

While you can put your little one in UPF 50+ clothing and swimwear which will protect him/her from the sun's harsh UV rays, sometimes sunscreen is needed too. Like on those hard-to-cover places like their faces, necks, ears, and chests.

Girl's Swim Hat

Be sure to remember a girl's sun hat as well to keep your little girl's face protected from the sun. We love this hat as it has an adjustable fit and is floatable so you don't have to worry about losing it in the ocean. The chin strap also makes this the perfect beach hat for windy days. 

This girl's swim hat is available for toddlers and preteens in sizes 2T to 10+.

A day at the beach means packing a beach bag and what better way to set your kid up for success by getting them to pack their own?
