It's time to take an inventory of all the things you'll need for a fabulous summer spent outdoors. Do you have a cooler? A beach umbrella? Swimsuits? Flip-flops? Water wings? Sand toys? A ten-gallon bucket of sunblock? And a picnic blanket! You can't do summer without a proper picnic blanket, and the JJ Cole Essentials Blanket gets the job done in style. The Essentials Blanket is the perfect landing pad for the park, the beach, Little League games, summer concerts, backyard barbecues, and any other activity where kids will need a place to sprawl out. The JJ Cole Essentials Blanket is made to go anywhere - the durable outer layer can handle any surface, from grass to sand to concrete. The inner layer is tough enough to take a beating from boisterous children, but it's also soft and thick enough to lie down on (and waterproofed to keep you dry if the ground is damp). And when mud, barbecue sauce, and melted popsicles go on the offensive, the picnic blanket's water-resistant lining wipes clean. When it's time to go home, this sturdy outdoor blanket folds up compactly, and handy creases make folding it a simple and speedy process. A detachable carry strap makes it a breeze to carry around, too. Measures 5 x 5 feet - plenty of room, so invite everyone along!
