5 Things You Need For The Spring Sports Season
With cherry blossoms starting to bloom, so too is spring sports season! Whether your kid is into baseball, softball, lacrosse, track and field, or some combination of a couple different sports, there are a few items that can make life a lot easier during this hectic season.
Here are a few things you’ll want to have in the trunk of your car as practices and competitions gear up:
Portable phone charger
There’s nothing like an extra-inning in the baseball game to remind you that you forgot to charge your phone all the way. Keep enough juice in your phone so you can keep taking photos and texting updates to Grandma by bringing along a portable power bank. HERE are a few user favorites that scored high reviews.
Most of us shudder at the thought of starting our day without a cup of coffee. The next time you’re running behind, grab your Nanopresso, a coffee maker tailor-made for those of us who are constantly on the move. It doesn’t need power to work, and it’s compatible with Nespresso capsules!
Foldable outdoor chair with built-in sun shade
If you go to enough of your kids’ games, you’ll eventually find yourself at a field that doesn’t have enough seating for everyone there. But that’s no problem for you, because you’ll just whip out your own foldable chair. There are a ton of options out there, but we liked the one from this article in particular — it has a built-in sun shade!
If you’re one of those parents who loves watching your kid on the field — but doesn’t necessarily need to hear the pierce of the whistle or the shouts of the crowd — these earbuds are the perfect solution. Use them to take calls hands-free, or even listen to podcasts and music throughout particularly long tournament days.
Stay cozy during those early season spring games when there is still chill in the air. This waterproof and windproof multi-stripe outdoor blanket is sturdy and machine-washable. Wrap it around your shoulders or legs for an added layer of protection. Also, be the hero when the team is sitting on the sideline waiting for their turn to play!
