Paint-on sunscreen!

Paint-on sunscreen

Peace’s sunscreen mishap turned into a wonderful hack! Keep this in mind as sunny weather (or Spring snowplay) approaches:

While vacationing in Costa Rica we paid quite a bit for some spray-on sunscreen for my little ones. After only one day of use, we dropped and cracked the bottle and it started spilling everywhere. I quickly grabbed a rinsed bottle from the recycling bin & let the sunblock ooze into the bottle. My mother-in-law had the great idea of using an inexpensive paint brush to apply it. This worked out better than expected since the kids found painting the sunblock on such fun! No more complaining: they ASKED to put on sunblock!
