SUMMER is on its way and day trips to the seaside are back.
Here’s how to get hold of all the ingredients for a relaxing day without splashing out . . .
CHEAP DIGS: Little ones will love building sandcastles with the mini-bucket six-piece set from The Works for £1, which includes a dolphin sand mould. Or grab the Nalu beach catch game, which includes two sticky Velcro mitts and a ball for £6.75 on Amazon. It will keep older kids and grown-ups entertained too.
DRY BACK AND RELAX: George at Asda has a cute blue shark printed beach towel for £4, down from £5, or a rainbow design for £5.50, down from £7.
SAVE: £1.50 on a rainbow towel
SCREEN TIME: There are harmful rays, even when the weather is cloudy. Stay safe with Boots’ Soltan Protect & Moisturise lotion — Advantage card holders can buy a 200ml bottle for £3.50 instead of £4.
HAT TRICKS: Keep a cool head and protect your scalp from sunburn with a canvas bucket hat in black, white, pink or yellow for £3 at Primark. If that’s not your style, there’s also a frayed-edge floppy hat in natural straw colour, green or black at the same price.
PICNIC LUNCH: Avoid an expensive lunch out by packing your own snacks and drinks for the day. Keep everything chilled in the stylish Kirkton House leaf-patterned lunch bag from Aldi, for £4.99.
SHADY DEALINGS: When you’ve had enough sun, take shelter under a multi-coloured parasol with UV protection from The Works for £10. It’s especially important if you’ve got young kids or a dog.
FULL OF HOT AIR: Young ones will have fun splashing around on a Bestway ride-on inflatable crocodile, down from £14.99 to £10.99 at Robert Dyas. Or get the kids’ Bestway unicorn airbed for £20, down from £35 at Dreams.
SAVE: £15 on unicorn
