Did you know it is easy to wipe off sand with baby powder? Did you ever think about freezing aloe to turn into ice cubes? Capri suns are great, but adult Capri Suns even better?Follow some of my freebies, Tips, DIYs, for making your beach trip or family vacation a breeze.
1. Baby powder no more sand
Yes, baby powder, It’s very effective for getting the sand off your skin. Simply sprinkle the baby powder on your legs and the sand will fall right off.
2. Bring Along the Lavender
Anytime we are in the sun I always bring along lavender, this is one of my favorite oils for great healthy skin and in my opinion the best oil when we have had a long day at the beach! It’s great for relaxing the kids at bedtime and make this after sun salve recipe to help keep their skin refreshed & healthy!
3. Cool Off Spray
Cool off with aroma Green Tea spray, is perfect chilled in the cooler. Pour your cold water into your spray bottle, add your tea bag, and let it steep for an hour or two.You will you feel cool and refreshed, but the antioxidants in the tea will do your skin a world of good as well! A perfect and simple new beach essential for you.
While you might not think its necessary this easy up has been the best thing we could of ever bought for the beach. especially if you have younger kids. just throw out some blankets or a fitted sheet and it’s a perfect place for a snack out of the sun. HUGE lifesaver for us to spend and we can spend more time at the beach.
5. Adult Capri Suns
Kids love Capri Suns? Grown up kids can too when you make these Adult Capri Sun with this recipe.
6. Individual Snacks
I’m not a fan of pre-packaged snacks because they are more expensive than the larger family size bags, but who can stand when someone puts there sandy hands into a bag and then the entire bag is ruined. This is one time when its okay to spend the extra bit and buy pre-packaged snacks! You can also take the family size bags and divide them up into individual servings but your on vacation.
I do purchase the big bags and break them up when were at home and bring them with us so that I can stock up when I find a good sale with coupons. Planning ahead is another great way to save on beach snacks.
7. Freeze Your Water Bottles
Throw your water bottles in the freezer at the resort the night before to use as Ice Packs in your cooler, as the water thaws you can drink them and you save yourself some space.
8.Freeze Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is great for cuts and sunburns, even bug bites. It’s been called the “First Aid” plant. Aloe vera’s soothing gel inside the thick, succulent leaves is an incredible natural skin care product.
