Last week I shared a post all about our 18 super fun outdoor activities for your family this summer and I couldn’t just leave it at that. Today I wanted to share our Amazon Favorites: Top 10 Outdoor Essentials For Your Family that we love and use often. Whether you are staying put at home encouraging a water fight, swimming in your own pool or community pool, headed to the beach or planning anything else you have planned with your family. I have got you covered today!!! These Outdoor Essentials are perfect to keep everyone happy and smiling this summer.
As we are approaching August in the next week, how is everyone feeling? Are you gearing up for Fall or hoping Summer stays forever? We are for sure a summer-loving family over here and plan to use these outdoor essentials and of course all of the outdoor activities to make the most of our summer. You can also find 9 of our favorite activities that we love doing together as a family below. I can’t wait for you to check them all out.
AMAZON FAVORITES: TOP 10 OUTDOOR ESSENTIALS FOR YOUR FAMILY
1// Little Fin Swimmer Float Vest
Any time my kids wear these Little Fin Float Vests I get asked about them non stop. They are super functional but also adorable. What I love most about them is the straps that go over their shoulders for extra support and helping them stay in place. You can see how they look on Edison HERE
2// Maxi Gathre Mat
We don’t go anywhere without a Gathre mat of some kind. Maxi, midi, the circle, any of them will do. They are great to always keep in your car for days at the beach, park or a fun little picnic. We use ours non stop. We set them up at home and sit together as a family. We love the Maxi because it fits us all comfortably, when it is just me and the kids, I generally pack the Midi size as it is easier to carry places.
3// Low Sling Beach Chair
It sure has been awhile since I have actually been able to sit and enjoy a chair while at the beach. But I do pack mine there often on occasions. When I know Edison has other friends to keep him busy and when I have enough snacks for Lucy to keep her close by. Love that you can order these individually or as a set.
4// 8 Person Coleman Camping Tent
Wanting to leave all this pandemic behind you and go on a simple vacation with your family. A camping trip seems like it would be the perfect solution. This 8 person camping tent has great reviews and now makes me want to go camping on the beach. If you don’t feel like packing everything up, I remember setting up tents in our backyard and camping at home. So much fun for kids.
5// Yeti Cooler
Pack some food, or some drinks and enjoy fresh cold food anywhere you go!
6// Roasting Sticks
We have similar roasting sticks to these ones. I love that these can collapse and has a travel bag included.
We used these nonstop when we were recently staying at a Cabin in Island Park. The kids were in heaven. Be sure to get a double person hammock, even if it is just for yourself. It allows for more room for comfort.
8// Tabletop Fire Pit
We are lucky enough to have a fire pit at our house. We had one installed a year or so ago, although still needs the finishing stone on it haha. But if you aren’t someone who has a fire pit or an area to do one. This table top fire pit is perfect. Also loving this option HERE found on Amazon.
9// Turkish Beach Towel
My personal favorite kind of towels to pack to the pool or the beach. Especially for kids. They are lightweight, small enough to pack several in your bag and the perfect size for kids. I love that they dry quickly too.
10// Portable Tabletop Grill
Great for small gatherings at the beach, or a park. Even a great excuse to switch things up by heading out of the house and enjoy a fun dinner together as a family.
11// Sun and Rain Canopy Umbrella
I need this small umbrella for the beach. There are several that seem like a pain to set up, or ones that are an actual tent. I don’t want that. Especially when i usually go to the beach for 2 hours. This seems like the perfect solution.
12// Veer Gear Wagon
Our favorite form of transportation for the kids year round, especially in the summer. It makes hauling them and all our beach gear a breeze. You can see another post where I shared how we use our Veer HERE.
We also included our Veer wagon in our recent Family Outdoor Activity post HERE.
