Summer is my all time favourite season of the year, and I am sure I am not alone on this one.  I like to bask in the rays, play in the water and I tend to be most active in the sunny months.  As a result, my kids are most active too and we parents know that more biking, running, climbing equals more scrapes, scratches and bruising.  It’s just the nature of the beast.

I like to make sure I have a little emergency kit with me wherever we go.  I have one in the trunk of our car and I always bring a collection of care items when we go away on holiday.  Here’s some summer care while we are away in Okanagan:

Nexcare summer care

My summer care kit includes sunscreen, hats for the girls, and in case of ‘boo boos’, Nexcare Sensitive Skin Adhesive Pads and Nexcare Sensitive Skin Tape. Fortunately, we have not had to use any of our first aid products yet, but they have traveled to a few places with us already this summer and I am ready to treat little kiddie delicate skin!
