With summer practically here, it's time to start thinking of activities to keep the kids busy, as well as cool. If you happen to live near a big water park, your kids may already know about it and asked for you to take them. I have fond memories of hanging out with my friends at the water park growing up, and although I haven't yet taken my own kids to own, this may be the year. Which is why I am all about water park hacks that will make my life (and my kids) more manageable as I attempt this excursion.
I have to say, I wish I had this advice when I was a kid. I remember leaving the water park starving, thirsty, and horrifically sunburnt every time I went there. I wasn't going weekly, because I wasn't hugely into swimming growing up, which is why I never learned my lesson I guess.
That's why you need a few water park hacks. My partner would roll his eyes at this kind of preparation just to go to a water park, but he doesn't fully realize the kind of epic meltdown that would ensue if my toddler discovered he couldn't go in the water because I hadn't packed the right kind of swim diaper. Here are 11 water park hacks that will save your family's collective butt and make the day a fun one.
