As you can see from the photo above and the crazy amount of bruises, my children are forever falling over and hurting themselves! They love being outdoors and certainly aren’t afraid of a bit of rough and tumble, which means that plasters are an absolute essential for us and we get through an awful lot of them.
Due to my children’s need for an endless supply of plasters we decided to take part in the Elastoplast and Britmums #TearsIntoSmiles challenge. Elastoplast is our go to brand for plasters as my children love their designs and I find them to be really good quality. As part of the challenge we were supplied with a garden ring toss game, to encourage the kids to get outdoors and play, and two packs of Elastoplast for any cuts or grazes that might happen along the way.
We headed out in the garden to enjoy the morning sunshine and to have a go at the garden ring toss game, which Evie had been itching to play with!
We took the Elastoplast plasters out with us as well – just in case. Luckily on this occasion they weren’t required but I’m certain that it won’t be long before we do need them!
But because Evie had already spotted the Frozen design ones, she had to have one on anyway despite the fact that she hadn’t hurt herself.
When accidents do happen, here’s how I turn those tears into smiles…
- Don’t make a fuss
- Give plenty of hugs and kisses
- Rub it better – always works a treat for me!
- Use ‘magic’ cream
- Let them choose their own plaster design
How do you turn tears into smiles?
Thanks for reading.
