Activity 1: Beach Time
We cannot speak about Summer without imagining ourselves at the beach. If you are lucky to being close to the sea, you must take advantage of these months for your little angels to enjoy the sand and the waves.

Activity 2: Short Trip
Summer is the perfect excuse to make a road trip or visit relatives we have not seen in a while. It can be fun to let your kids choose the destiny, remember that exposing your children to new places helps them learn adaptation processes that will be useful along their lives.
You will spend some good time in the car, so you must make sure your little ones feel comfortable and they don’t start feeling irritable during those challenging trip hours. Having a good car seat with you is fundamental. The Doona Car Seat Stroller is one of our favorites because it includes two summer must haves items every mom needs, a modern design that lets it transform it in seconds so you can take your baby from the car to the street easily.
We know logistics to spend a couple of days out of the house can be complex as well as having everything you normally need for your daily routine with your kids.

Bath time and your baby’s cleaning doesn’t have to be complicated if you have the necessary products with you. The Sena Changer is perfect to create a secure and comfortable area for you and your baby.

You’ll love the Inglesina fast table chair , not only because of its 5 security points harness but because it is portable, comfortable and it includes a travel bag for you to transport it easily no matter which your destiny is.
Activity 3: Summer Picnic
Not all the outdoor activities must imply long trips, you can go on a picnic at your favorite park in the city or even do it in your house’s yard.
You don’t need plates for your picnic, it is much more practical if you use containers not only to transport your snacks in a safe way, but also to use them while you eat. The Oxo Glass baby blocks are perfect to transport any kind of food, even liquids thanks to its anti-spill system. If you also need to keep your meals cold, the Clix mealtime kit will be your favorite one because its cooler bag lets you keep three containers with the ideal temperature for your little ones’ meals.
Clean easily what you need with wipes , we assure you they will be your salvation to maintain hygiene without further inconveniences. We like the swipe baby wipes case because it is perfect to carry with you, whereas it is hanged on the stroller’s handle or in your diaper bag. If we speak about cars and practicality we know the answer is a light and easy to manipulate item as the Maclaren Quest . Do not forget to protect the little ones from the insects during a nap at the park with a mosquito net that adapts to your stroller.
Activity 4: Walk to the Museum or the Zoo
Take advantage of your little angels days off to visit the closest museum or zoo, we assure you will enjoy it a lot and it’ll be a great family moment.
Having a baby does not have to be an impediment for the whole family to enjoy a visit to the museum, a baby carrier can make things easy while your toddler has fun being in touch with history or art. If you want to make sure your baby is close to you, the walking reins will help you have better control and less worries.
Hey! Not all of the practical things when selecting summer must haves have to lack style. Mom, we know you will appreciate an outstanding, fashionable and equally useful diaper bag to carry everything you need without losing style. The Greenwich simply chic backpack smoke is a clear example of how diaper bags can have different designs, so they can look like a pretty wallet with practical compartments to combine with your outfits.
Activity 5: Home Fun
We know leaving home is not always possible, especially if not all of the family members are on vacations. For that reason, you can also plan fun summer activities for kids at home to make them forget about the screen. Camping in the backyard, planting a garden, enjoying a barbecue or playing “car wash” are fun activities that will not cost much.
