Ice chest "drain" as toddler beach shower
Elizabeth's creative post-beach de-sanding trick:
With all the camping hacks, it reminded me of one that we use. We live near the Texas Gulf Coast, and nothing is worse than putting a sandy toddler back in a car seat. What works for us is to fill up an ice chest with water from the hose and put it in the back of the pickup (SUV could work too.) Make sure it is an ice chest with a drain plug. When it is time to head home, hang the ice chest over the tail gate, pull the plug, and it becomes an instant toddler shower to clean off the sand. And usually it is pretty warm from being in the sun all day!
