Water Park Playdate Essentials


Having the kids home all during the summer, means the trunk of my car is always equipped with summer play essentials. After running errands, having the kids tag along, as a parent I do feel obligated to treat them with a trip to the park after an afternoon of grocery runs and other household/personal errands. With that said, here is my summer essential list of items that have been living in my trunk ready to go at any given/spontaneous trip to the water park.

Summer Park Essentials:

– Extra Clothes

(Extra outfit: T-Shirts/Shorts/Underwear/Socks)

– Trunks/Bathing Suits

– Flip Flops

– Beach Towels (1 Per Child)

-Beach Blanket

– Sand Toys


– Stroller

– Sunblock

My Holy Grail Items:

– Collapsable Wagon (Costco/Sams Club/Dick’s Sporting Goods)

– Beach Blanket

– Cooler (CapriSuns/Fruit/Small Water Bottles)

– Camping Chair (For mommy)

– Fedora/Sunhat

– Sunglasses

– Camera

– iHome/BlueTooth Speaker

– External Charger + Phone Charger

Many of the above items are now a staple to what I typically keep in my car. There have been so many instances when my boys wanted to visit the park, and I left the bin filled with sand toys and other park toys in the garage. (Bad mom award) Don’t you hate when that happens?


Here’s a recent photo of my last visit to our local water park.

This park visit I packed Zuppa Toscana into a heat tumbler, and packed a bowl to enjoy some homemade soup at the park, just as if I was at home!

Happy summer everyone!
