Have you ever gone to the beach or zoo and you were over the experience within the first hour? Then you have come to the right place. Here is a short survival guide to make it through those tough adventures. Enjoy this awesome read!

When going to the beach/zoo you have to make sure that you have your essentials or your family outing is going to be short lived.

We have all gone somewhere that is suppose to be really enjoyable , but it feels more like a punishment because you are missing those satisfying essentials.

As you can tell by the sort of suspenseful jabber that this blog totally focuses on what you need to have in your cooler or backpack.

Well, here are some things that will turn that dreadful day into a fabulous adventure. (this will totally make your life a lot easier)

The Beach List

  • Cooler
  • Towels
  • Beach Mat
  • Umbrella/ Tent
  • Sunglasses/Hat
  • Sunscreen
  • Fold-able chairs (no one wants sand on their butt lol)
  • Baby Powder W/ cornstarch based (this is to remove the sand)


I highly suggest that you freeze your drinks!

  • Water infused with fruit and mint
  • Simple Meals: Chicken salad or lettuce based salad
  • Pasta Salad
  • Frozen Yogurt
  • Various dry snacks

Even when going on a zoo excursion you are going to need the food items because depending on your family size buying food is going to get pricey. Plus who wants to wait in those long lines, everyone will be all tired and over the trip. It is best to prepare for the unexpected.

Make life an adventure because you don’t want to miss out on awesome memories sweating the small stuff!
