The Best Summer Must Haves

Even though it feels like a billion degrees outside, I love being able to take my son outside and enjoy the many adventures that we can take together. Our family loves to do everything together and it’s great because there are so  many great products out there for families to enjoy with their little ones.

Here are the best summer must haves that I think every family, no matter the size, should have. Not saying you need them all, but once you see these you’ll do anything to get them all.

Best Summer Must Haves | The Modern Dad

16′ Red White & Blue Jump Rope | Walmart – Who doesn’t remember days on the playground jump roping or if you were real good, doing double dutch? Get yourself a Champion Sports Plastic jump Rope, or two, and teach your kids a little something about timing and a great way to get some exercise together.

Flamingo Inflatable Pool Toy | Yellow Octopus – The pool is a second home to our family in the summer time. We love having all the nieces and nephews, neighborhood kids come over and play in the pool. But if you want to step up the pool time fun, then you have to get a fun inflatable. Flamingos are the big thing and this big inflatable one is going to drive all the kids wild. You’ll be the talk of the neighborhood.

MIDI City Scape – Love Taza Collection | Let’s Playground – I love New York, but now that I have a little one it makes traveling there a little harder. But does that mean that I have to lose my love for such a great city? No! Why not bring the city to you. These fun play mats are great for anywhere you want to go. Throw it out, and let your child’s imagination run wild.

Mason Teepee | Tnees – Summer is all about the sleepovers. Maybe it’s a little too hot to be sleeping outside, so why not get a fun Tnees teepee to put in the family room and have  a sleepover with your kids. These teepees are just so fun and super cute. Definitely a must have for summer time.

Madsen 2015 Bike | Madsen Cycles – Nothing better than summer time bike ride. Madsen Cycles make the perfect family bike riding adventure so much more fun. With the bucket in the back you can pile in the kids, buckle them up and hit the open road. Grab some snow cones, let the wind blow through your hair and get ready for the best summer with your Madsen bicycle.
