One of our favorite things to do during the summer is visit theme parks. Whether it’s a trip to SeaWorld San Antonio or a day at Six Flags Over Texas, our family loves to spend the day in the hot sun riding rides and just having fun. These 5 Things to Pack for a Theme Park Vacation are necessities when you plan on spending the day there!
If you’ve spent any time at theme parks, you know that things tend to be more expensive in the gift shops. So making sure you’ve got all of the supplies you’ll need before you leave home is essential!
Here are my must-have items:
1. Ray-Ban Sunglasses
I recently shared my love of Ray-Ban sunglasses. I’m a firm believer in investing in a nice pair of shades. They make all the difference on a hot summer day!
2. Summer Hat
Whether it’s for yourself or your little one, a summer hat is a MUST. When the hot sun is beating down, you’ll be wishing you had one. And you don’t want to have to buy one, trust me!
3. Protective Phone Case
A waterproof phone case, like a LifeProof case for the iPhone, is great for peace of mind when it comes to your electronic devices. You don’t want to get them squirted by a water gun! Plus, you can get in close to snap those fun water play moments!
4. DIY Temporary Safety Tattoos
These DIY Temporary Safety Tattoos can be a life-saver, literally! We make sure to put them on my son before going anywhere there could be a crowd. And for a fraction of the price that you can order them online, this is the way to do it!
5. Banana Boat Sunscreen
We LOVE Banana Boat sunscreen. My husband really likes the Men’s SPF 30 Clear Spray, while I’m partial to the Protect & Hydrate 50 Lotion. And we always get the Kid’s Tear Free SPF 50 Clear Spray for Andrew. Some other varieties that I want to check out are the Sport SPF 50 Clear Spray, Protect & Hydrate 50 Spray, and Men’s SPF 50 Lotion.
We’ve been using it for years, and it’s never let us down. As a fair-skinned family, sunscreen is a top priority when we go anywhere during the summer, especially a sunny theme park!
Plus, it’s easy to stock up on these summer essentials at Walmart, where there’s a huge display with all of your Banana Boat needs — you could win instant prizes, including a $100 Walmart gift card!
And be sure to check out the Banana Boat Wheel of Fun on Facebook!
Once you’ve taken care of the essentials, you can get down to the summer fun.
