I’m so glad that it’s summer finally! My daughters and I enjoy being outdoors. There are so many things to do. My daughters love anything that deals with water. They love going on our water slide as well as having water balloon fights and squirt guns. It’s a lot of fun when water is involved. Going on the water slide is probably one of my daughters favorite things to do. They always have a ton of fun with that. They also love having friends and family over for when they go on their water slide. They had their cousins over not long ago so that they could all have some fun with the water slide.

While you’re outdoors, there are many things that you may need for a survival kit. Some of my must have items would be sunscreen, wipes, water, towels and extra clothes. You never know when you’re going to get water on yourself, so having extra clothes is a must. The wipes are for when my daughters get messy. If we’re every on the beach, then they always get full of sand. Water and sunscreen are always a must for me. I try to carry these everywhere I go.



Even though my kids are well out of diapers, I know many of you moms are headed to the beach with your little ones so check out these great ways that you can revamp your diaper bag into the ultimate Summer Swim Survival Kit and even add a touch of Finding Dory magic!

Whether you’re at the beach, running through sprinklers, swimming, or having some water plays outside, you never know when the water may find you. There are a lot of ways to enjoy Summer while being around water.  Make sure you are prepared with these Summer Swim Survival Kit must-haves:

  • Proper Eyewear: Protect children’s eyes from excessive chlorine and chemicals by buying kid-sized goggles. When the kids are ready to take a break from the water, protect their eyes from the sun’s bright rays with sunglasses. Parents should keep a couple sets of replacement lenses in the pool bag just in case someone’s shades get cracked or scratched during a trip.
  • Pack the Right Swimwear: Huggies Little Swimmers disposable swimpants are made for worry-free water play. The easy-open sides make changes a breeze, so everyone can get back to having fun in the sun. Plus, they now have new Finding Dory designs your little fish will love!


  • Sunscreen: The sun will be out in full force for the summer and that means parents need to protect children’s skin when they are outside. The higher the better when it comes to SPF levels and remember to reapply regularly!
  • First Aid Kit: Along with packing pool towels and water bottles, parents should not forget a basic first aid kit. Include plenty of waterproof Band-Aids, antibiotic ointment, children’s pain reliever, ear drops and bug spray.


What kinds of items would be in your survival kit?


  1. I used Little Swimmers for my kids when they were little. They’re great. I always carry sunscreen and spare clothes during the summer because we never know when we will need them!

  2. My kids would love that pool but our yard is so uneven. I make sure I have hats and sunglasses in my bag for my kids. They have blue eyes and they tend to be a bit more sensitive to the sun.

  3. Thank goodness mine are out of diapers of all kinds. Pool trips are so much easier now that they can practically get themselves ready. I still make sure they get coated in sunscreen though 🙂

  4. It’s crazy but I never think of bringing a First Aid Kit with me to the pool. It’s a really good idea, though and I’ve got a couple of spares lying around the house. Thanks for the tip!

  5. I would love to have a pool in the yard. It is a great way to relax and cool off. Little swimmers are a great invention. You do not need to worry.

  6. Kudos to huggies for making such an awesome product! I’m sure a lot of moms will appreciate this especially this summer. Beach and swimming trips will be so much easier now!

  7. I have never found anything for those days out in the water better than these little swimmers. I also agree that a first aid kit is important because you never know what could happen.

  8. You have compiled a great list for summer safety! Being prepared for any and everything is definitely the way to be when you are dealing with summer water and sun.

  9. I love that the Huggies have the popular themes on the Little Swimmers. These are perfect for the pool or the beach!

  10. I am so glad huggies has this! It’s definitely going to make swimming with toddlers easier, especially if you haven’t mastered potty training yet! I love that they chose Dory as the design too! Isn’t that delightful!

  11. Little swimmers are the best! I feel bad for little ones who play in the water with traditional diapers because they get SO big that it’s often hard for them to walk! Plus, some of them leave those weird gel crystals on their skin.

    • The Little Swimmers are the best for younger kids when they’re swimming. I loved them for my girls when they were younger.
