Thank you to Walmart for sponsoring this pool day post!
Summertime is synonymous with pool time in our family and we kicked things off last weekend with a visit to my parents’ house to play in their pool! There was rain the forecast for days leading up to the weekend so I actually wasn’t prepared for the unexpected clear skies that we ended up having, so I put in a last-minute Walmart+ order and was able to get all the things I needed just in time for a super fun afternoon splashing in the water.
I’ve had my Walmart+ membership since March 2020 when we started getting everything delivered, and it has been one of the best memberships that has saved me countless times over the last few months. The Walmart+ membership has so many benefits including free shipping from Walmart.com with no order minimum (excludes freight & Marketplace items), free delivery from my store as soon as today (with $35 order minimum, restrictions apply), member prices on fuel, mobile Scan & Go, and even Rx for less!* (*Not available in all states. The program is not insurance and cannot be combined with insurance.) Walmart literally offers hundreds of thousands of items so I’m able to get not only groceries, but also household items such as batteries, kids’ toys, and even pet supplies for my cat. I can get everything I need and the Walmart+ membership pays for itself if after just two deliveries (based on the $7.95 delivery fee). There’s even a Walmart Express Delivery option that delivers your order within 2 hours for only an extra $10 fee. I was actually thinking that I was going to need to take advantage of the Express Delivery option, but when I put in my Walmart order on Sunday morning, there were delivery times available for that afternoon so timing worked out perfectly!
Read on to see what I picked up from Walmart to make our pool day a success!
POOL DAY MUST HAVES
What is a pool day without cute floats to ride on right? Floats bring almost all of the fun when it comes to pool time for me and my kids and Walmart has so many fun options for the whole fam! Mei absolutely fell in love with this rainbow unicorn and I have to say that I was actually really excited to see that it was big enough for two since I wanted to join in as well. I also picked up this donut floatie for Dylan and we all had such a fun time jumping in and out of the donut center. This was the first time for me buying the Intex brand for both the unicorn and donut float, and I have to say that these are incredibly sturdy and well made. Lots of trendy options and I love that there are options for adults, kids, and even babies!

WATER TOYS + WATER BALLOONS
Dylan loves a good water soaker and Walmart has lots of options depending on just how crazy you wanna get! I went for one similar to this best-selling option and it was perfect for my little kids and me as we sprayed and splashed each other.

I also picked up a set of water balloons and buckets for the kids to have some variety. The water balloons were actually so much fun and surprisingly easy to fill up thanks to the special design from this Bunch of Balloons pack.
And because Dylan loves a good challenge when it comes to seeing how deep he can go in the water, I also picked up this diving toy set. The pack came with 12 different items that each sank at different speeds and Dylan had so much fun swimming around and scooping them up with the provided net!
SHOP WALMART WATER TOYS
Sunblock is of course another must-have and Walmart has all the brands that my kids and I love. I picked up Sun Bum for our pool day as the sunblock sprays are easy to use, the scent is light and coconut-y (reminds me of the beach!), and the have lots different options for both face and body!
SHOP WALMART SUN PROTECTION
PUDDLE JUMPERS FOR LITTLE ONES
For the little kids who are still getting comfortable in the water, I also highly recommend these Puddle Jumper life jackets! Walmart has lots of different designs available and it’s really helped Mei develop her confidence when it comes to swimming.

It’s no doubt that pool days are our favorite days so I’m excited to have more of these now that warmer weather is here to stay! Be sure to check out Walmart for all your pool day needs and take advantage of all the membership benefits including free shipping!
