When you are heading out to the beach with your kids this summer, you will no doubt grab sand buckets, a cooler with drinks and snacks, towels, and swimsuits. While all of these items can assist with having a good time, it is important not to overlook the items that can help keep your kids safe. When packing up the car, be sure to grab the following items.
Strong waves can sometimes knock a child off his or her feet in less than a second. Without any flotation devices, a child could get pulled under and out with the current, possibly swallowing water during the chaos. A swim vest can help to keep a child afloat if a scary incident like this occurs. Swim vest are available in all different colors and styles, so pick one that your child loves so that they will enjoy wearing it and not put up a fight.
