Now for the little ones...

 

The playful prints for the kids are so cute this year we'd like them in our size too.

For boys, let them loose with a Nerf super soaker Scatterblast, £10.99 from Argos. They'll love the shark print rash vest and swim shorts too, for ages 3 to 14 years, from £10 from Marks & Spencer. Girls will love the tropical colours and print of this floral tankini, from £12 from Next for ages 3 months and up. Let them dive into summer and explore underwater with a pair of goggles, £8 from Next.
