The warmer weather has arrived! With the season change, comes the question of how to keep your kids busy- and not inside playing video games or watching movies all day. If that question is going through your mind, it’s time for a beach day! You’ll get some exercise, relaxation (hopefully), fresh air and quality time with the kids!
What’s needed for this? Comfort + Food + Fun= The Perfect Beach Day!
Comfort at the Beach
Once you arrive at the beach it’s time to set up your space. Of course you’re going to want to lay out some towels and apply some sunscreen (if you haven’t already). As the kids run out into the water and you’re watching from you’re spot, you may decide laying down doesn’t work because you can’t keep an eye on the kids, but sitting on the towel all day doesn’t sound fun.
Having this Kelsyus Canopy Chair (Backpack Beach Canopy Chair) will come in handy! They’ll keep you shaded and you won’t have to worry about your umbrella falling over in a gust of wind!
Before you know it, the kids will be running to the water with their body boards like the COOP Super Skim!
After your kids have relaxed long enough for their stomachs to handle some food, it’s time for lunch!
Having a picnic allows you to spend the whole day outside, without having to spend any extra money for lunch! Here are some awesome picnic food ideas:
If want something healthier than soda, but more flavorful than water, we’ve got the perfect portable drink ideas too! These Fruit-Infused Teas are sure to sweeten up your day!
Be creative with your dessert! These adorable mason jar No Bake Brownie Trifle variations are easily portable, tasty, and did I say adorable?
The typical beach activities like: building sandcastles, swimming, tanning, and reading are all great ways to spend your time at the beach. But there are a lot of other ways to enjoy your time together and are great for the active kids in your family!

Virginia Beach, Va. (December 5, 2012) – COOP®, a partner brand of Swimways Corp., announced the debut of their new high-performance snowboarding action figures and accessories, Shredz™. A line of seven collectible, poseable snowboarder action figures made for snow play.
Each articulated 3.75″ snowboarder comes with an ID card detailing his home mountain and personality, a detachable helmet, and a customized snowboard.
The helmets and snowboards are interchangeable between the Shredz action figures, promoting collectability. The Shredz Track Building Tool, Jump and Trick Set allow kids to design and build their own challenging snowboarding trails and terrain parks carved out of snow.
“These are not your everyday action figures. Team Shredz are specially designed to ride the mountain,” said Monica Jones, Swimways Corporation Marketing Director. “The best part about Shredz is that you can create any kind of downhill track or terrain park. All it requires is your imagination and some snow.”
Surrounding promotional efforts for the product launch include a blogger driven Shredz in action video contest where entrants can win COOP snow products and have their video featured on the COOP website.
Shredz snowboarders and accessories are available for purchase on Amazon.com, Target.com, and SwimWays.com.
