Our Top 5 Warm Weather Essentials for Kids
Posted on May 05 2022
With a heatwave due in the UK this week, there's no better time to make sure you and your little ones are all set for summer! We've put a list together of our fave essential kids' items for when the weather gets a little warmer. Take a look at our suggestions below and let us know what you think!
Sun cream is an absolute must for everyone, not just kids! We know it can sometimes be difficult applying it to little ones, so we stock the most exciting sun cream around - SunDust SPF50+ Sunscreen is made in Australia (so is 100% tried and tested in hot weather!) and contains biodegradable glitter so is extra fun for children and adults alike. It doesn't contain any nasty chemicals or fragrances, and is great for sensitive skin. It's also good for the planet, so it's a win-win!
A good pair of supportive sandals is a life saver when it comes to walking long distances and playing outdoors in the summer; there's nothing worse than your little one having sore feet from uncomfortable shoes. We have some great options from Bobux, Geox, Ricosta and Lelli Kelly, including fab water-friendly styles! Pop into our Llandudno store for our free shoe fitting service, or shop online.
Sun hats are great for protection from the sun, as well as a super cute addition to any outfit. Choose from bucket hats which protect the face and neck, straw hats for an adorable traditional look, or caps with protective visors. We have sun hats for babies, toddlers and older kids from brands such as Emile Et Rose and Frugi, so there's something for everyone.
It's no secret that we love a good jelly shoe here at Little Lily's, and our Igor jellies are always super popular. They're extra soft and supportive for little feet, and have a padded insole so kids can stay comfy all day long. Jelly sandals are great for a day at the beach or a dip in the pool, and are fab to just throw in your bag if you're out for the day.
An absolute must-have for summer days at the beach or by the pool, we love a fun swimsuit! We have super pretty and sparkly options from Billieblush and Meia Pata, whether you want a traditional swimsuit or prefer a bikini.
