Your own little mermaid will be protected from the harmful rays of the sun in this two-piece swimsuit. The suit boasts a 50 UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) meaning only 1/50th of the sun’s harmful rays make it through. The only thing your kid will care about is the mermaid scales that appear when the suit gets wet.

$58 for the 2-piece set available in 18 month to 5T.

MESA is not only a culinary gem in the heart of New Albany, but a kitchen gift shop/accessory store as well. I found this amazingly adorable flamingo apron for my kitchen helper/aspiring Food Network child star. The adjustable strap will let the apron grow with the little master chef.

The best alternative to the store-bought high sugar ice treats is to make your own fruit juice frozen pops in these Zoku animal silicone molds. The kids won’t notice they’re having a healthy treat but will notice the animal form it takes.
