Summer is upon us! The sun is getting stronger by the day and as we all know sun protection is important for our health. We searched high and low for useful products that will help protect our family from the sun and not interrupt our fun! Here are our top 5 picks:
This mom-invented umbrella & sun shield is lightweight and comes in a bag with a shoulder strap that makes it easy to carry. It’s perfect for the beach, park, backyard, or anywhere you want to be shaded from the sun. It’s quick to assemble – the umbrella pole has a pointed end that easily sticks in the ground, the sun shield attaches to velcro on the umbrella, and then you can anchor it with sand, water bottles, rocks, etc. Velcro strips cover the entire rim of the umbrella making it easy to rotate the shield with the sun. Great sun protection and keeps you (and your stuff) cool.

5) Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen SPF 30+ Sport - $20.24
Blue Lizard broad spectrum sunscreen is one of our favorites. It’s very water resistant and recommended by dermatologist. The best part is the bottle turns blue when the harmful UV rays are present, so there’s no question about when you need to use it (kids can’t argue with that!).
