Its sooo nice to see the sun making an appearance especially as Ava is getting more confident by the day with her walking, although she’s certainly had her fair share of tumbles! I love getting outdoors with her and letting her explore, I’ve always got some Elastoplast plasters in my bag just in case though!
Getting a scraped elbow or a grazed knee is pretty unavoidable the way little ones run about but I thought I’d share my top tips on how to make them feel better if the inevitable happens
- Laughter – Laughter is my go to, it’s how my dad dealt with my mishaps. He would always ask if I had damaged the floor! It always took my mind off the cut. With Ava I will always try to distract her with a favourite toy or by pulling a silly face.
- Cuddles and Kisses – A hug always makes your little one feel safe, and a magical kiss to make it better always works.
- Elastoplast character plasters – I wish these character plasters were around when I was little! I’m pretty sure every little one will soon turn those tears into smiles once they see the Frozen or Star Wars plasters, and I know a certain adult in our house is loving the Star Wars ones!
Elastoplast have been giving a helping hand when it comes to falls and cuts since 1924, so I know it’s a brand I can rely on when it comes to looking after my family.
Elastoplast have created a really cute video where they literally turn tears into smiles by creating little water-colour paintings using tears. What an amazing thing to do.
Thanks for reading and I hope you have lots of outdoor adventures whatever the weather!
