Summer is heating up and vacation time is in full swing. If you haven’t been to the beach yet, what are you waiting for? A better place to go to escape the heat waves of summer is to the quiet reaches of the cottage. You just can’t beat cottage life to help you forget the hot hustle and bustle of the city. What do you take along though?
Playmat – cottage life can sometimes get dirty. When you pack for the baby, don’t forget to bring along a clean, safe place for your baby to stretch, wiggle and explore, without having to worry about them eating pine needles, ants or worse!
- Blankets and other miscellania - You can never have enough blankets. Whether it be burp cloths and bibs, swaddling blankets or nice cozy blankies to keep your baby warm on those cooler nights by the lake, babies require lots of extra packing. Better to have and not need, than need and not have, right!
- Child-sized chairs – There is nothing more frustrating for children, than trying to function in a world that is not sized right for them. Banish that issue altogether with these children’s personalized adirondack chairs that are perfect for cottage life.
- Swimwear – The kids will probably live in nothing more than their swimsuits while you are at the cottage. I would even suggest taking more than one! The only other thing they will need will be a towel (or two, depending upon if your kids hang them up or leave them in a wet pile that never dries), a long pair of pants to guard against bugs in the evening, and a set of pjs to sleep in. That, a hot dog and their imagination should fill all the hours at their disposal.
- Worry-Free Dining – Who wants to worry about chipping the fine china when you are living the laid-back cottage dream? Forget about it with this personalized melamine tableware! Better for the environment than paper, and certainly less worrisome than breakable dishes. Easy to clean up and cute too! The perfect choice for easy living.
- Good Books – Even leaving the bigger routines behind, there is still some work to be done at the cottage. In between making meals and putting children to bed, adults get a little more down-time though, so why not bring along your summer reading list to indulge in.
Enjoy cottage life!
