How to Apply Sunscreen to Wiggly Kids (and not get it in their eyes!)

photo by play4smee


It's a fact. My kids are wiggle worms. So putting sunscreen on them while they are making a bee-line for the pool is no easy feat. Applicaion needs to be quick, comprehensive and make as little mess as possible. Enter the Swim Goggle and Spray Sunscreen! I have the kids put their goggles on before the sunscreen and I spray them from head to toe! That way, I don't have to worry about getting it in their eyes. Once I'm done, I touch up the under eye area if needed! Presto! Full Coverage. No Mess. No Burning Eyes.

    Not that I always manage to do this, but I think you're supposed to apply sunscreen 15-30 minutes before you go outside, rather than at the poolside. http://cancer.about.com/od/skincancerprevention/ht/applysunscreen.htm
    Maybe there could be a pre-swim trial before leaving the house - swim suit on, googles on, spray!
