One of the best parts about summertime as a kid was getting out of the pool to devour turkey sandwiches, chips, watermelon and whatever mom fixed up for lunch. Nothing beats sitting around a picnic table with friends and family, soaking up the sun, and making memories. Make sure your little ones have a hooded towel to keep warm and dry as they enjoy their summertime snacks.

Hooded towels for kids are too adorable and might even make some little ones excited to give the water a break to eat and recover. They're cooler than most beach towels or bath towels, plus you can designate this as your baby or kid's towel for outdoor fun (no one wants to ruin clean bath towels outside!).

We rounded up five toddler towels to match many personalities, from superheroes, mermaids and more. Your baby girls and baby boys will love these hooded bath towels.


Water Safety Tips

Remember to use sunscreen 15 minutes before going out to swim, take breaks to hydrate, and eat (including letting food digest). You know your child best, so be sure to tell them to come out of the pool for breaks, especially if you notice they're getting sleepy.

Grab some pool floaties and goggles as well. And of course, they might think you're hovering, but they'll understand one day. Water days can be dangerous without floaties and adult supervision. Unfortunately, accidents happen, so keep your children safe by taking precautions.
