For many school-based therapists, the summer months represent a bit of a break from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the school year. Maybe you can sleep in an extra hour in the morning or maybe you can actually find the time to exercise. Or, maybe you simply transition roles from therapist to shuttle driver and activity planner for your own kids while they're on summer break.
Either way, we hope that summer is a time when all therapists who work so hard to take care of their clients and students can find some ways to focus on self-care.
Today, we have our best Amazon summer finds for some fun in the sun! Whether you're planning a beach vacation or just an afternoon at the local pool - we've got you covered!
If you're planning on some fun in the sun...don't forget to hydrate! Check out our roundup of the best travel water bottles for therapists!
The Best Amazon Summer Finds

This genius little device makes applying sunscreen a breeze! Fill it with your favorite sunscreen and then roll/sponge it on with ease.
CeraVe Mineral Sunscreen
Wondering what sunscreen to put in your Solar Buddy?
CeraVe is one of our all-time favorite skincare brands because it's so great for sensitive skin and kids. That means no chemical smell and no burning eyes on the beach!

Roxy Oceanside Pants
You'll want these cute, comfy loose-fit pants for every trip to the beach or pool this summer.
And you'll probably have a hard time deciding on a color because there are so many fun options!
We finally gave up on buying cheap, junky swimsuits that fall apart after a few wears.
These suits come in tons of cute patterns, styles, and colors. Plus, they're smooth and sleek with coverage and a great fit in all the right places.
Kacmagic Hair Clips
You're hot, your kids are whining and you're lugging all of your family's gear to the perfect spot on the beach.
But the thing that's putting you over the edge? Your sweaty hair sticking to your face. Throw these in your clear pouches and you'll be prepared to avoid having sensory meltdown on the sand.
Look mom! Watch this! Look at me! No more squinting and straining while you supervise all of those rad tricks your kids do at the pool.
Also perfect for when you finally get a chance to pick up that beach read.
Hands down, the best way to maximize your summer reading time.
The Paperwhite is ideal for throwing in your bag so you have your book on hand in the car, on the plane, or on the beach!

Pretty up your Kindle with this cute little case. We love this floral print, but it also comes in lots of other colors and prints!
A great way to make reading even more appealing!

Let these beauties become your new "off duty" shoe.
Loveledi Portable Charger
This little device is a must-have for off-duty adventures all year around!
Another great item to throw in your bag so you have a charged phone at all times for photo opps or Starbucks drive-thru emergencies.
Freeze these puppies up, pop them in your drink, and enjoy your Diet Coke the way it was meant to be enjoyed - cold, bubbly, and NOT watery from melting ice cubes.
Reusable and fun, summery colors!
Simple Modern Tumbler
It was a treat to read the reviews on this tumbler - people are VERY passionate about their tumblers and water bottles. We are too! If it gets us to drink more water throughout the work day and during our off-duty time, AND it's cute?! Sign us up!
All the perks of a Stanley with a slightly lighter price tag.
