The weather is getting warmer, the world is slowly opening up, and your kids need some new shorts… again. Even though time slowed down this past year (or did it speed up? Not sure …), the rate at which your kids keep growing did not, which means you have to keep buying them new clothes practically every 5 minutes to keep up. As summer approaches, now is a good time to purchase some solid pairs of shorts that’ll last them all summer (while you’re at it, you may want to browse some kids flip flops for hangin’ out by water … even if it’s just the inflatable pool in your backyard.) And Mama, since your summer wardrobe deserves an update too, check out our favorite comfy sweat shorts and running shorts to keep you cool and comfy, even in the hottest months.

Since there are approximately millions of shorts to choose from on the internet, we did some narrowing down and made of list of the best shorts for girls and boys that are comfortable, cute, affordable, and… well, short enough to not be pants. (Of course, if your child’s style doesn’t conform to gender rules, that’s great, too.) Take a look below to find a pair or two to add to their summer wardrobe.
