Ok posting her for traffic...
I'm organising the boot of my car ready for summer....I have bought a storage boxes and the organiser to hang on the seats (see pic) so what do I need
My list so far includes
A beach box with- buckets, spades, nets for rock pooling, towels, beach blanket, wet suits and a change of clothing for the two dc.
In the organiser I was going to put, spare pjs, more spare clothing, lightweight coats, umbrella, hats, first aid kit, wipes, sunscreen, the car jump leads.

ANYTHING I am missing or any other good ideas?? Thank you!!

A soft brush to clean sand off feet's, shoes etc before getting back into the car. Like the brush from a dustpan and brush set.

Spare sun cream in case you forget to take any.

After Sun incase, calpol, paracetamol, puke bags, hand sanitizer grin

My local council issued a warning about leaving hand sanitizer in the car. Apparently it's too flammable in your weather! Device chargers?

A few small toys or colouring in books and pencils in case of a break down or road delays

Emergency triangle? Fluorescent jackets (think these should probably live in the body of the car TBF). Tyre pump/pressure gauge?

I like to keep sunglasses for me and spare glasses for me in the car as I couldn't drive home without glasses.

I also keep some bits like a couple of bottles of bought unopened water and temperature stable snacks like oatcakes in there.

Talc, for cleaning sandy children.
Bottles of water/cartons of juice

Given the lack of public toilets, travel john or similar for emergencies!

I always have a nearly finished toilet roll. And a towel to fold thickly and sit inside the car seat while you are out. Seats and buckles can get very hot.

Definitely talc to de-sand hands and feet post beach

Just thinking back, I had a few years where I had one of those pop up shelters in the boot and a backpack picnic set, along with everything else. The picnic set is still there and used occasionally even now.

Thank you all.

Talc first the sand I had never heard of but now I will definitely get some!! Thank you!!

Calpol is in the first aid kit 👍

The triangle and hi-vis are already in the car.

I have organisers in front of the DC's seats with colours and toys etc already.

My car has a suspended floor so I store water and snacks in there so I think that's covered.

@TheSandgroper yes I haves picnic bag and matching picnic mat that stay in the car too!! Thank you.
