Is the summer season ever complete unless you have at least a couple of memorable afternoons hanging out by the pool, going to the lake, or taking a much-needed beach vacation? However you plan to spend your time indulging in water activities, one thing is certain: you can’t do it without all the proper swimwear and gear. And that goes for your kids, too! In this post, we will take a look at a few top-quality swimwear items your kids will love this summer season.
A toddler rash guard is a great choice for your young one since it will provide some extra protection from the sun. If you plan to spend many hours in the pool or at the beach on a hot sunny day, consider investing in a rash guard to protect your son or daughter’s skin in addition to a good SPF. If you are going to the beach, a high-quality rash guard will also protect them from sand and other irritants. Not only are rash guards comfortable and practical, but you also can shop around and find plenty of cute styles with animated graphics, funky colors, and patterns like tie-dye.
Rash guards are also excellent for your older children, especially if they participate in lots of water sports like surfing or playing water polo. Just as with boys' swim trunks and girls' swimsuits, there are plenty of cool rash guard styles and colors your active kids will love, like colorful camo and neon green tie-dye. When out of the water, nothing beats a warm long-sleeve UPF sun hoodie to protect your son or daughter from the sun and still have them feeling cool and stylish.
Another way to keep your child’s skin protected from the sun or keep them warm when they are out of the water is by investing in a stylish girls' cover-up. Every parent knows how sensitive kids can be to temperature changes, so after a good towel dry, let your little girl snuggle up in a cozy, warm cover-up.
This is a great piece to have if the whole family is on a beach vacation and you plan to grab dinner at a beachside restaurant right after spending the entire afternoon in the water. A good-quality cover-up is something your daughter can wear to dinner after hours of playing on the beach. Plus, there are so many cute styles and colors to choose from (like terry cloth cover-up hoodies and solid-colored UPF sun hoodies) that you won’t have difficulty finding a style she loves.
You can’t have a beach vacation or a fun pool day without a cute swimsuit! If you have a daughter, shop around for various girls' swimsuits that your young one will love. If your daughter participates in active water sports like surfing or water polo, she might love a long-sleeve rashguard with bikini bottoms in fun, bright colors, and designs. There are also plenty of stylish swimwear options for your little one who has a flair for fashion. Shop different styles, like mini skirt swimsuit bottoms, a block color one-piece swimsuit, or a colorful swimsuit with a ruffle top.
Little boys like to look cool and stylish just as much as little girls do, so have some fun and bond with your son as you shop for beach toys, accessories, boys’ swim trunks together. There are so many styles, designs, and colors, from sharp-looking, bright, solid-colored trunks to print swim trunks with ocean-inspired designs like sharks and waves to sporty, athletic swim trunks. If your little dude spends lots of time in the water, especially during the summer season, invest in a couple of new swim trunks that you know he will love.
We have spent a lot of time focusing on practical, stylish swimwear for kids that they can wear both in and out of the water, but one thing we can’t forget is a durable pair of swim shoes. Aside from the flip-flops they may love wearing when they are on the beach, keep their feet protected in the water with a pair of sturdy, waterproof water shoes or sandals.
They might not need this in your backyard pool or community watering hole, but if you are heading to the lake or the beach, this is a must-have. Not only will their feet be protected from rocks or other potentially hazardous items in the water, but there are plenty of cool styles and colors they will love.
After figuring out the swimsuit situation for your kids, consider a couple of important add-ons like sunglasses when they are out of the water, goggles when they are in the water, and whatever else they might need to keep themselves occupied this summer. Kids love fun beach toys even if it's as simple as a volleyball or a shovel to dig in the sand. And for extra sun protection, complete their summer swim look with a sun hat or baseball cap.
Consider adding a few of these items to your kids’ swimwear wardrobe this summer!
