Sand Be Gone

20120421-210108.jpg
We love the beach, but let’s face it, it can be a bit messy. Sometimes thinking about how sandy the kids get can deter me from going at all. The Girl will roll around in the sand and not care. The Boy isn’t so keen on being sandy. He has made progress since last year when he wouldn’t touch it at all, but he still is not a fan of it sticking between his fingers. I can’t blame him. Today he threw a fit because I couldn’t get every little spek of sand off of his wet hand. It’s a good thing I have this cool trick up my sleeve. Baby powder. I won’t go to the beach without it. Just sprinkle it generously on the wet sand that is stuck on your body, then wipe it away with a towel. The powder absorbs the moisture in the sand and it wipes right off. It’s so much more effective than rinsing it off with water. Give it a try. Your beach days will never be the same.

  1. Not that I go to the beach very often, but that is a great tip! I HATE having sand all over me.
