  1. Great ideas, especially the balloon! My tip for after the beach – if you have horible sunburn, brew some tea, soak a towel in it and lay it on your sunburn for about 30 minutes. It will fade the sunburn by the next day.

  2. These are all good ideas! I recall getting lost at the beach once, and my dad went out looking for me, I remember how scared I was. If there was a balloon I probably wouldn’t have wandered so far that I couldn’t find my way back!
