Heading to the beach? Stock up on some sea shoes to avoid sandy feet-induced sulks. Stuck for rainy day activities? Make sure some machine-washable arts and crafts are within easy reach.

You’ll find these summer holiday life-savers – and many more items to entertain the kids – still on offer in the Amazon Prime Day sale until midnight Wednesday.
