Zulily, a retailer dedicated to providing moms and kids with all the trendiest essentials at unbeatable prices, has constructed a quick and easy checklist of everything you need this summer to be prepared for some family fun in the sun. With the weather getting warmer everyday and the school year coming to a close, it’s safe to say pool party season has begun. So whether it’s a pool party at your place or someone else’s, there are certain supplies that no pool party should go without.
1. The Summer Tote
Every mom needs at least one tote, and the arrival of summer only makes one more useful. It provides a portable and easily-accessible way to always have your summer supplies (sunblock, snacks, wallet, and so on) on hand at all times. The summer tote has to be able to withstand some wear and tear from the sun, sand, sunblock, and kids. Zulily designs totes that are practical in these conditions while still being super cute and trendy.
2. Drink Holders
Out in the hot sun, it’s important for you and the kids to stay hydrated. But instead of wasting tons of plastic bottles, invest in some cool plastic beverage holders. Spill-proof and break-proof, they are perfect for on-the-go and young kids.
3. The Ultimate Wondershade
It can get hot and exhausting to be exposed to the sun all day, especially for little ones, and sometimes sunblock can only carry you so far. Get a break from the sun with an umbrella. Zulily’s Ultimate Wondershade is not only a large, portable umbrella, but comes with cup holders and towel racks too.
Wet bathing suits and towels in your car can be a huge drag. Solve this problem with Zulily’s towel clips. Toss some into your tote and near the end of the day hang wet items from lounge chairs or umbrellas for a comfortable, dry ride home.
5. Pool props
From floaties to inflatable chairs, pool props are a must for any pool party. And they come in all shapes and sizes, so Mom can have one of her own for some relaxation in the sun.
6. Pool toys
No pool party is complete without pool toys! From fins to goggles, Zulily has everything to maximize your child’s pool time fun.
