Kids’ water bottles for summer

Stay hydrated this summer

Park play dates and long days at the pool and beach mean you’re going to have to keep your kids hydrated. Buying bottled water all summer will start to drain your budget — and put a strain on the environment. Using refillable kids’ water bottles is the perfect way to quench your kids’ thirst, and we’ve rounded up a few new bottles you’re going to love.

Easy-to-use for small hands

The Contigo® AUTOSPOUT Kids Striker Water Bottle is the perfect, easy-to-use bottle for little hands (Go Contigo, $11). With a one-touch lid, the Striker is simple for kids to use themselves. The best part about the one-touch lid is that the bottle is also spill-proof, so you can toss it into any bag without worrying about spills.

Save the rainforest — one meter at a time

Sigg water bottles are 100% recyclable, BPA-free and phthalate-free, which makes them an eco-friendly choice for green-thinking families. This spring, Sigg collaborated with Cuipo, a social enterprise working to save the rainforest. The Cuipo bottles have adorable animal designs to appeal to your child’s sense of whimsy, and each bottle purchased saves one square meter of the rainforest (My Sigg, $21).

Lightweight bottles for thirsty kids

When you’re hauling pool gear, sunscreen and lunches for your crew, it helps when kids can take responsibility for some of their own supplies. Kleen Kanteen’s Kanteen Classic is a lightweight bottle kids can carry on their own (Mighty Nest, $16). The sport spout is spill-proof but not leak-proof, so if your little one is tired of carrying it, be sure to store it in a side pocket and not the bottom of your purse.

Hydrate like mom and dad

CamelBak bottles are a favorite for adults who hydrate while biking, running and hiking. Kids can be just like mom and dad with the CamelBak eddy™ Kids’ bottles (CamelBak, $13). The BPA-free bottle has CamelBak’s stem tube and shut-off valve, in a one-piece design that’s simple to clean — and all parts are dishwasher-safe.
