Tuesday Tips & Tricks - Beach Sand and Baby Powder

I'm the Sand Man!

The past few weekends have been sunny and hot - perfect beach weather wherever you live and plenty more to come over the next few months! We happen to reside less than an hour from the gorgeous Lake Michigan shore and have found a favorite spot at the Saugatuck Dunes State Park. It's a hike from parking to playing in sand and surf, but it is well worth it.
If you have children, you know that any trip to the beach or even a sandbox at the park ends with sand everywhere on (and sometimes in) your child's body! A simple trick to reduce the amount of sand that ends up in car seats or all over your house is with the use of baby powder! 
The sand can be wet or dry, it doesn't matter. Strip them down and sprinkle baby powder over every sandy spot. Rub vigorously, yet gently, and watch the sand fall right off. It's a little trickier with older kids who don't want to bare all with everyone watching, but have them hold a large towel around their shoulders and just reach up underneath. You can even put it in their hair, knowing they'll be getting a shower or a bath later anyway.
Now you can enjoy your day at the beach knowing you'll be taking a little less sand home with you!
