Summer is fast approaching, I call it the season of "boo boo's". That time of year the kids are out and more active than ever enjoying the warm summer days of no school. Unfortunately accidents happen when kids have fun causing boo boos and sad faces.
As parents, one of the many hats we donne is of course the first-aid attendant. My kids run to mommy or daddy when they get hurt, looking for us to make it better and take the boo boo away.
Create a Cheer Chest - Kids love searching for treasure! Why not act and distract with a special Cheer Chest just for your little ones when they get a boo boo. Fill up a small box (you can find small treasure boxes for cheap at local dollar stores) and fill it up with trinkets like stickers, temporary tattoos, little toys and other pick-me-ups and watch the "owies" disappear!
Dance Party - Music may soothe the savage beast, but it also works wonders for sadness, too. Turn up tunes in the car, at home or even on your smartphone if the boo boo happens while you're out and bust out a silly dance party to shake and wiggle the tears away.
Enlist the Cuddle Brigade - Hugs and kisses are always welcome distractions - but what about some love from an entire cuddle brigade? Get your child's favourite stuffed animal in on the act to kiss, hug, cuddle and tickle the tears away.
Band-Aid bandages for boo boo's - One thing that has always made my kids smile when they are hurt is a BAND-AID® bandage. The BAND-AID® Brand MAGIC VISION™ app featuring the Muppets helps turn hurt into happy by helping mom and dad (or a caregiver) take their little minds off the hurt and into the happy with silly antics from Disney's The Muppets.
Kermit, Miss Piggy and Gonzo come to life - keeping your child (and you) giggling away the boo boo's in no time. Simply pick your favourite character, scan your Band-Aid bandage and get ready to enjoy the show! With your child's help Kermit sings his own version of "Rainbow Connection", Gonzo shows off a thrilling new stunt and Miss Piggy strutts her stuff on the red carpet!
Available for both Android and Apple devices, this simple little app will have you both giggling in no time.
Above all...Keep smiling! - When little ones take a fall, they often turn to their parents to see how they react. If you act shocked or scared, chances are it will worry your little one and they will mirror your reaction. Keep calm (although even a small fall is a scary fall) and smile. Let them know it will be ok and that you are there to make it better!
Find Disney's The Muppets Band-Aid brand bandages in your local pharmacy aisle for all your little one's boo boo needs!
The Band-Aid brand "Hurt to Happy" kit includes three (3) plush Disney's The Muppets (Kermit, Miss Piggy and Animal), a play stage featuring Disney's The Muppets for your little ones to act and distract, and of course a box of Disney's The Muppets Band-Aid bandages!
