I have these huge beautiful and colorful beach towels that would look great and work well for this,project. The fact you can throw it on the washer is super practical over inventions store bought backpacks. You could even add your kids first name discreetly for safety's sake, but for identification at the pool. Great idea!

Ooh, I can feel the softness already. Great idea!

Great idea for keeping your stuff dry! I'm definitely making this for the next time I go to the beach.

What a clever idea. I would totally take one of these to the pool.
