15 items to pack in pool bag for family with kids
All ready to splash

The first time I took swim lessons with my toddler, packing the pool bag seemed overwhelming. I forgot either swim diapers or regular diapers. One time I forgot my bathing suit, but was with my Mom who let me wear hers. Bringing the family to the pool on vacation or over the summer is no different. There's lots to bring and potentially forget.meg

  1. Swimsuits
  2. Sunscreen
  3. Swim diapers and regular diapers and underwear for everyone whose potty trained
  4. Sun hats and glasses
  5. Towels, cover-ups and extra dry clothes just in case
  6. Water shoes and/or flip flops
  7. Water and snacks for everyone
  8. Shampoo
  9. Brush or comb
  10. Plastic bags so everything doesn't get wet
  11. If there's snacks available, bring your money and make sure it's safe
  12. Pad locks to protect your belongings
  13. Flotation devices (our park district requires they be coast guard approved, go figure!)
  14. A ball to play catch
  15. Bandaids in your first aide kit

I feel like I've gotten the hang of this whole pool bag for the family, but it's easy to forget something so keep this list in your bag. Last, but not least — anything else you would bring?

Have fun and be safe!
