We have your Checklist for Pool Bag Essentials

Here’s a checklist of what to bring whether you own a pool, you’re invited to a pool party, spend the afternoon at the neighborhood pool or go to the beach or lake on a hot Summer day! We want to be your one-stop shop for all things swimming related!

1) Find a large beach bag to fill up all Summer essentials

It doesn’t have to be a designer bag, it will get wet! You want to use a bag large enough to put everything you need. If you have kids your bag will need to be large enough to carry twice as much.

2) Don’t skip the sunscreen!

Don’t be that person who forgets their sunscreen. Protect yourself from sunburn! Pack enough in case somebody else forgets theirs. You should have a couple of options for sunscreen: spray or lotion with different amounts of SPF for a child or adult. Children should have a minimum of 30 SPF applied at least every hour and a half. There are SPF sunscreens for the face and lips and you can get waterproof sunscreen if you will be swimming a lot.

3) Towels, towels, towels.

Personally I like to have two, one to lay on and one to dry off with. It’s always good to have towels on hand, you never know when you may need them! This is a chance to show off your swimming pool style.

4) Healthy filling snacks

Swimming all day will make anyone hungry. You will definitely want to bring filling healthy snacks that are easy to hand out and grab on the go. Granola bars, string cheese, apple slices, baby carrots and ranch are some healthy choices that are easy to pack and the kids will approve! Check out our Pinterest page with many healthy snack ideas.

TIP: to keep things cool, freeze juice boxes or water bottles to create a DIY ice pack and a drink for later in the hot sun!

5) You can’t forget the pool toys!

Floaties, goggles, pool noodles, beach balls, frisbees are great examples of pool toys that will keep the kids entertained all day. Much of the toys out there now can be deflated for easy carrying. If you run out of pool toys you can always resort to good old fashioned swimming pool games. Check out the blog post for more swimming pool games.

6) Last but certainly not least, extra clothes!

Bring a fresh shirt for everyone in case you all decide to leave for a quick bite or you all want to play outside of the pool and don’t want a cold wet bathing suit to make you sick. I would throw in a couple of hats, baseball hats, floppy beach hats for the ladies or safari hats work as well. Sunglasses, swim suit cover, summer blanket.

I hope a few of these tips helped you, and will allow for a fun time at a pool this summer! Remember us for all your swimming pool needs! Have a great Summer!
