Summer is here and the kids are excited to be home for the summer. They have one thing on their minds and it is to have fun! Lots of fun can and will happen if we keep our kiddos busy and safe. There are lots of fun water toys for kids allowing endless hours of fun time in the sun.
We have to remember how powerful the sun is these days and prepare our kids with proper Sunscreen, UV hats and clothing. Visit Sunburn Prevention and Tips to get the Consumer Reports tested Sunscreens.
Last year, 58 sunscreens were tested and only 15 were recommended from Consumer Reports. Several sunscreens had less than half of SPF that was advertised on the label. Pretty Scary! Disney’s Frozen was one of the 15 recommended sunscreen products for kids.
If you’re planning a trip to the beach please read Beach Safety and Kids for very important safety tips for kids, teenagers, and adults who will visit the beach. Prevention is the key to enjoying your day at the beach.

Heading down for a day at the beach is a family favorite. There are so many things to do in the sand. Building sand castles with the neat Beach Toys, splashing in the ocean water, throwing a Frisbee against the wind, and flying a Kite are some great memories I have. Kids grow up and will always remember the times they had at the beach with their family.
While at the beach, have fun with Inflatable Beach Toys. The classic toy at the beach that many generations have played with is a simple Beach Ball. You can’t go wrong with a beach ball and have endless hours of simple and safe fun!
A very popular water toy for kids and one that was popular in my house growing up and even as adults is a Water Gun. I remember chasing my brothers around the house shooting at the backs of their heads laughing and having the time of my life.
For the big kids there is the drenching Super Soaker! That toy needs to be played outdoors! It is definitely a soaker.
We also have great backyard water toys for kids. To make a nifty Sprinkler that shoots out water at various angles, there are attachments for the water hose to keep the kids cool for hours. There are also some super cool Water Table Playsets with ponds and waterfalls. I certainly don’t remember having these neat toys when I was younger. Boy how times have changed!
There are lots of beach toys for kids listed below to add to your adventurous day at the beach.
