We all love a day at the beach, but when you have kids, there is some real planning and careful packing involved to ensure that they are happy and safe while playing in the sun. That’s right — you’ll need to pack much more than sunscreen and a floppy hat, and you’ll probably need to swap out your beloved beach read for swim diapers and a playard.
