Build your Banana Boat Summer Bag Essential Kit! - Family Love In My City

Build your Banana Boat Summer Bag Essential Kit!

Summer is here and our active family is marking playdates, camps, swimming lessons, vacations and city adventures all on our calendar! I would love to live in the “don’t glorify busy” mantra, but as a momma who loves being prepared and ready for anything, I need to plan these things out a bit. And I need to know how much Banana Boat Sunscreen to stock up for these sunny San Antonio days!

To ease my mind, I made a Summer Bag Essential kit and fit it all in one clear travel bag, so I can take with me anywhere. At a moments notice, I can grab it on my way out to the pool, or my husband can put in his backpack or gym bag if he taking the kids to go bike riding or to play at Aquatica, Sea World San Antonio’s waterpark. It’s one less thing we have to worry about and can easily transition from the park to the pool!

Banana Boat Summer Bag Essentials for Active Families

In the bag:
  • Sunscreen - I love Banana Boat and often carry a couple options, spray and lotion, men’s, kids...
  • Wipes - Baby wipes are a catch all: clean up, paper towel, hand cleaner, tissue - all in one. 
  • Antiseptic Ointment and Bandages - To help aid in the little scratches along the way.
  • Baby Powder - It’s a great trick to get sand off your skin and can help freshen when you and your kids have been sweating all day!
  • Hand Sanitizer - Because no one wants to get sick in the summer!
  • Comb - For the crazy hair, and combing out my daughters hair after a swim.
  • Insect repellent wipes - I found these a while back and love that I don’t have to carry around another liquid in my bag.
  • Reusable bag - I love these bags for wet clothes and the unexpected!
I choose Banana Boat Sunscreen because I love the #BBBestSummer options. Protect and Hydrate 50  Lotion (which also comes in a 50 Spray) is best for all of us when I can only take one sunscreen. The Mens SPF 30 Clear Spray lives in my husbands gym bag. And as an athletic guy, his gym bag goes everywhere with him! There is also a Sport SPF 50 Clear Spray when the extra protection is needed. Lastly the Kids Free SPF 50 Clear Spray comes in handy when I have to spray a lineup of kids!
