What's in this post...
These rash guards for kids help keep your kids from burning, increase the time they can spend in the sun, and are super cute to boot!
People, summer is a coming!
I can’t wait.
I dream about it.
Because I like the smell of sunscreen more than coffee.
Which makes sense since I don’t even drink coffee.
When I lived in Australia, all the kids wore rash guards.
My daughter showed up at the pool in her baby two-piece and even with 50+ SPF I got the death stare from other mothers. Whatever, I’m more secure than that.
With time I began to realize rash shirts are cute, easy, and a foolproof way to prevents kids from getting burned when they’re outside all day.
Benefits for kids:
- Skin protection
- Allows you more time out in the sun
- Can double as a swim suit and an outfit
- More modust, perhaps
Rash Guard Shirts
Here are some rash guard shirts that are under $15.
Prices may vary slightly by size, but these are the most inexpensive options in basic colors that you can pair with most swim trunks or swimsuits you already own.
Honestly, you’ll be surprised how much longer the kids can stay out in the sun when they are wearing these things.
Here are a few for your fellas.
And some for your little ladies.
Rash Guard Matching Suits
These are the cutest to me. We have quite a few sets, both for my daughter and sons, and they usually come with a hat as well.
If they are in bare skin they usually want to come in a lot sooner because when a hot sun beats down on their skin it feels uncomfortable.
However, with these, they can get on with the playing.
Here are some lovely girl options.
And some cute boy options as well.
