I participated in an Ambassador Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Banana Boat® Sun Care. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
Hey everyone! Sorry to miss posting a summer boredom buster last week, we have been out of own and having the best summer ever! Summer can be fun, and summer can also be crazy. The difference for me is having fun activities planned. If the kids get bored, you might try out this activity. I call it “paint tag,” but really you can integrate the idea for capture the flag, and other fun games.
At home with the kids? Instantly access any of these printable activity bundles to keep them learning!
I would put the kids in swimsuits and have them wear white T-shirts so that it is easy to see which team has won by how much color is on the T-shirt. If you don't have white T-shirts, you can also cut a “smock” type shirt out of a white garbage bag.
Assign each team a color. You can use food coloring, or if you are worried about the kids spraying each other's skin, you can also use washable paint.
Fill the water guns, spray bottles, or water balloons with half water, half paint. Shake it well.
Play the game “tag” style, or use water balloons and play the game like “Dodge ball.” The kids will have fun as they become colored in paint. Most likely, you can set up the game and the kids will even create games of their own to play.
Best Summer Ever with Banana Boat
Remember while having the Best Summer Ever, to protect your family's skin while out in the sun! I don't burn very easily, but my husband does and being married to him has taught me to be more prepared so that he (and especially one of my daughters) don't fry! Make sure to get fingers, toes and parts of the head that aren't covered with hair.
My husband has been trying out theBanana Boat® Triple Defense Sunscreen for Men. A 2012 survey by The Skin Cancer Foundation which revealed that men over age 50 are more than twice as likely as women to develop skin cancer, yet only 51 percent of men in the U.S. admitted to using sunscreen in the past 12 months. Men were also found to be less knowledgeable than women about the proper methods to protect themselves against sun exposure and skin cancer. To help combat these harrowing statistics, Banana Boat® designed Triple Defense Sunscreen with men in mind. Banana Boat® Triple Defense Sunscreen for Men contains ActiveProtect Technology, and provides heavy-duty broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection which kicks in and stays strong when the sun’s rays are most intense. The light-weight formula combats odor, even while sweating, and hydrates the skin. This new product line is ideal for active males who want strong sun protection and the freedom to enjoy their active lifestyle. Banana Boat® Triple Defense Sunscreen for Men Lotion and Clear UltraMist® is available in SPF 30 and 50+.
