My family and I are counting down the days to our vacation in July. This year we are headed to Topsail Island in North Carolina. We’ve never been there but we’re so excited. I’ve read nothing but good things about it in my researching. Have you ever been there? I’d love some recommendations for food, things to do, etc.
We went to a local lake recreation park that has a little beach to kind of tide us over (no pun intended). The kids had fun but now we really can’t wait to head to the beach!
My 4 kids are all talking about what they want to take on the trip and what they want to do on the beach. My 12 year old tells me today that he has a kite and he wants to fly it on the beach. Then of course my 7 year old says “I don’t have a kite!”
My 3 year old wants to know if she can build a sandcastle. She just love playing in the sand. Both my older boys were asking if we had a beach ball because they thought we had one but we apparently don’t. Or we had one and they busted it a while ago. And I’m always worried about keeping my valuables safe while on the beach. I went to Oriental Trading trading thinking they were the best place to get some of these things checked off the list but actually, I was able to check them all off the list.
How about a Giant inflatable beach ball that measures 30 inches! 30 inches, that’s like 2.5 ft. Would be easier to keep track of!
For myself, hubby, and my older boys I found these super cute Dolphin Beach Safe Containers!
For my 7 year old that wanted his own kite, they had these cool Shark kites. Only $11.99 for a dozen! Him and all his siblings could have one. We’d have plenty for back ups or maybe a random act of kindness on the beach!
Oriental Trading have sand pail and scoop sets. I found so many things though like frisbees, sunglasses, visors, squirt guns, fans, totes, and lots of things that would make a day at the beach more fun and comfortable.
Now if you’ll excuse me. I think I have some ordering to do. And don’t forget to tell me your recommendations for Topsail Island, NC!
