  • How gross can he get at the beach? He's a kid! Let him get dirty! It's only beach sand and water, as long as he takes a bath when he gets home, I think he'll live.

  • Bring a large towel and cover the seat with it. I thought about the bottle of water, too- maybe some gallon jugs, but just protecting your car would be easier.

  • I just rinse the sand off in the water, carrying him back to the blanket, dry him and put clean clothes on him. The beach is 30-40 minutes away, he gets a bath that night (or else his schedule gets messed up).

  • It's just sand - what's the big deal?
