With the Fourth of July over and back to school items beginning to rear their ugly heads in stores everywhere, many feel that the end of summer is upon us.  But now is the best time to pack up the kids and head to the beach with the best deals and smaller crowds.  Before you go, remember to pack the beach fun essentials such as a shovel and pail, sandcastle molds, and a Frisbee.  But why not grab a few fun items that you haven’t tried?

Swimways ‘ Sun Canopy Baby Float’**Every little beach baby needs a safe way to have fun in the water while still enjoying UV protection.  This fun float with a Disney Princess Theme is my favorite.

Sizzlin’ Cool Spider Paddle**For kids five and older, a fun paddle and ball game passes the time on the beach so that you can relax, enjoy the sun, and surf!

No-Spill Bubble Bucket**The beach is a fantastic place to enjoy some bubble fun.  When you’re done, just splash in the water to clean up!

The Chic & Cozy Travel Blanket Bag by Chic Tots*The Ultimate Must Have Beach Item for Moms, available at many Target stores and online*. **This bag is the ultimate beach and park bag for moms with babies and toddlers.  It is not only chic and stylish, but it also opens out to a blanket, perfect to lay out on the sand.  When it’s time to go, there’s no need to load toys from a blanket into a bag.  Instead, the blanket just *becomes *the bag in a matter of seconds and you’re on your way.  If you are only planning on purchasing one new travel item this summer, this is the way to get the most bang for your buck.
