8 Spring break essentials from One Step Ahead

8 Spring break essentials from One Step Ahead

1. Sand-Away Beach Sheet, $28
No more reminding the kids to keep their sandy feet off of the beach blanket! This innovative beach sheet allows the sand to sift right through, keeping your snacks and gear sand-free while you’re taking breaks from playing in the water.

2. Sand-Off! Sand Removal Mitt, $10
You’ve probably pinned a million different ways to remove the sand from your little ones, because the last thing you need in your car at the end of a long day at the beach is sand! Just slip on the mitt, wipe down your kiddos and you’re good to go.

3. Sun Care Travel Kit, $10
Grab one of these kits for every car, every beach bag and every purse you’re bringing on spring break this year. It will save your life when you’ve forgotten the sunscreen at the hotel… not that would ever happen, right?

4. Waterproof Case for iPhone, $20
You’ve protected your kids, but what about your devices? One Step Ahead has an entire line of waterproof cases to make sure your tech is safe at the beach or the pool and down to 33-feet undewater! Also available for smartphones and iPads.

5. Family Beach Bag, $25
Leave your beloved purse at home when you’re traveling to the beach and pool over spring break and trade it in for one of these beach bags. Not only does it have pockets for days, but it has mesh along the bottom and sides so that you can shake out the sand before you unpack. And, we can’t resist that monogram!

6. Sun Smarties Infant Cabana, $50
Having a baby at the beach can be tricky because as much as they look adorable in that cute little bathing suit you bought them, sun and babies just don’t mix. Keep her protected in the One Step Ahead Infant Cabana which offers UPF 50+, keeping 98 percent of harmful UV rays off of her precious skin.

7. Collapse a Pail Sand Bucket, $13
Okay, now let’s talk about how to have fun on spring break! Sure, you could just buy a cheapie sand bucket when you get to your destination, but we thing that this collapsible pail is a better option that will last much longer and build much bigger sand castles!

8. Kids Swim Goggles, $13
You’ve probably realized by now that just like bathing suits and flip-flops, goggles are a spring break essential that needs to be refreshed every season. These from One Step Ahead are famous for actually staying on and for being easy to adjust.
