It’s summer time, the kiddos are out of school and there are so many days of fun in the sun ahead. I don’t know about your kids, but mine get hot and sweaty pretty easy when the temps start to rise. I think it’s our Northwest blood that just takes a while to adjust.
Whenever we leave the house, there’s a few essentials we pack with us on hikes, trips to the park or bike rides: sunscreen, snacks, a tote of summer toys, and lots of water. Hydration is pretty important and there’s not always a water fountain around so we pack our favorite kid-safe stainless steel water bottles to make sure we’re always prepared.
There’s a ton of new water bottles on the market these days to choose from, but these are the ones we like best because they’re super durable and free of lead, BPA and other harmful products for the kiddos. We’ve also learned that letting the kids pick out their water bottle means that they’re more likely to stay hydrated all summer long!
The Crocodile Creek bottles come in the perfect size for day camp or adventures at the park. We love that they have such a wide variety of fun designs for kids to choose from.
The youth bottles hold more water (13 oz) for an older child, and the designs are a little more sophisticated.
This is a family favorite and we each have at least one Klean Kanteen. The one in my office with a few dents and marks of character demonstrates how durable these are! There’s a color, size and cap style for everyone!
Just like Klean Kanteen, there is a variety of sizes and tons of designs to choose from, for both boys and girls of all ages. One of the features I like best about the Sigg Sport Model is the lid which keeps dirt, bugs and germs away from the part the kids drink on. Our lunch boxes get tossed in a bin and I know the water bottles get dropped and kicked on the soccer field so I like keeping this area somewhat clean.
This one is for the mamas! I personally like the zen-like design, and the slight feminine touch in the cap. It’s the little things, right? You can also feel good about the donation they make towards planting trees with each purchase.
This bottle is perfect for little yogis or bike riders! It holds 12 ounces and fits nicely into most lunch boxes too!
There are so many kid safe and eco friendly water bottles out there that it’s hard to capture them all. Some of other brands around here include Nalgene and Camelbak. Which are your favorite and why?
