Top Tips for a Perfect Day at the Seaside with Mimi & Lula

Summer is in full swing, and what better way to spend it than a delightful day at the seaside with your little ones? At Mimi & Lula, we believe that every beach trip should be a magical adventure filled with fun, exploration, and, of course, the most charming accessories. Here are our top tips for making the most of your beach day, from rock pooling and ice creams to sandcastle building and paddling, along with our top five UK family beaches to visit this summer.

1. Rock pooling Adventures

Rock pooling is a fantastic way to ignite your child's curiosity about marine life. Equip them with a small bucket and a net, and watch their excitement as they discover crabs, starfish, and other sea creatures. Don’t forget to accessorize with Mimi & Lula’s Cecil Crab Mini Clips and Shell Clic Clacs, which add a touch of seaside magic to their look.

Tip: Always remind your kids to be gentle with the creatures they find and to return them to their homes after observing.


 2. Ice Cream Delights

No beach day is complete without a delicious ice cream. Whether it’s a classic vanilla cone or a more adventurous flavour, this sweet treat is sure to bring smiles. Style up your little ice cream taste tester in our Ice Cream Bag and Ice Cream Clic Clacs- sweet enough to eat!

Tip: Don't forget to pack extra snacks and drinks for those hungry tummies!


3. Sandcastle Building

Sandcastle building is a timeless beach activity that sparks creativity and teamwork. Bring along a set of colourful buckets, spades, and moulds, and let your children’s imaginations run wild. Pair their beachwear with our Shell Bag to store their collection of beach treasure and keep the wind at bay with super cute Mini Shell Clic Clacs to stop hair flying into their faces.

Tip: Use damp sand for building—the wetter the sand, the better it holds its shape.


4. Paddling in the Waves

Paddling in the shallow waves is a delightful way for children to enjoy the sea safely. Make sure they’re wearing our cute Fish Bag and Fish & Shell Clip Pack to make them feel like a little mermaid.

Tip: Take lots of towels to dry off and a spare change of clothes just incase!


5. Beach Games and Activities

Bring along a beach ball, frisbee, or kite to add even more fun to your seaside day. These simple games are perfect for family bonding and burning off some energy. Complement their active play with our Doodle Backpack, ideal for carrying all their beach treasures and essentials.

Tip: Plan a mix of activities to keep the day exciting and varied.
