My kids and I are blessed with the type of skin that burns after just moments in the summer sun - while we often get complements about our skin tone, light hair and blue eyes we also turn heads when we get sunburn!! Ouch!! I have always covered my kids multiple times a day with sunscreen while we are in the sun but I will be honest, I am not as diligent with my own skin. BAD, I know.
This summer I am making sure I take care of my skin just as much as my kids because guess what? I am not getting any younger and the threat of skin cancer is so scary, especially here in Colorado. I do not want to join that statistic. I have found my new partner in this feat - NEW Banana Boat® SunComfort® Lotion Sunscreen.
Banana Boat® SunComfort® Lotion Sunscreen is perfect for any summer sun activity; it is tested to stay on in 7 real life conditions – sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and even 100 degree heat.* Talk about a well rounded sunscreen to have on hand. This time of the year, it is a must have for us plus it moisturizes and protects my skin while enjoying the summer fun with my family.
The kids are getting older and that means they literally want to spend every day and evening outside with our neighbors and friends. It is a ton of fun but we have been trying to find things for them to plan in the lawn. So I decided to do a little DIY lawn game for the kids to play! It turned out so cute!
Flamingo Ring Toss
Flamingo lawn decoration
Large sandbox buckets
Sand or rocks
Rings (we used diving rings)
1. Build flamingos by placing stakes as the legs.
2. Fill each bucket full of sand or rocks.
3. Carefully place the flamingos in the sand, push them down all the way into the bucket for more security.
4. Place buckets through out the lawn and carefully toss each ring onto the necks of the flamingos.
5. For older kids and adults you could label the buckets with numbers to keep score.
6. Have fun!!
This ring toss screams summer to me. The flamingos, bright colors and sand buckets are perfect for summer fun in the yard with family and friends. I am so happy we created these, the kids have loved playing ring toss and the flamingos are pretty cute and festive in our yard!!
The best part about using Banana Boat® SunComfort® Lotion Sunscreen is that I can enjoy the fun with my family in the sun and be protected. Banana Boat® SunComfort® Lotion Sunscreen is available at Target in 30 or 50 SPF in spray or lotion. I love the spray option because I can apply it myself. Finding a sunscreen that provides safe and effective broad spectrum, UVA and UVB protection and is a Water-resistant formula is important for this time of the year. Bring on the sun, the water, the sand and the heat!
