Turning Tears into Smiles with Elastoplast #TearsintoSmiles

So my children are forever falling over especially the two little ones. Every day they are supporting a new bruise or tiny cut. Each little cut is often the worst thing ever for them. They tell us on repeat about it till its healed, show every person they see the cut and make us put plasters on ALL THE TIME. As a nurse you would think I would have some experience but with my kids I mainly put a plaster on. The other day Ami got bit by the hamster on went a plaster, Son Son grazed his knee on went a plaster.

My children have to be the most clumsy of children also (nothing to do with having a clumsy mum). When I was in reception I was in and out of the school nurse's office with cuts and grazes. My little Son Son has my genes all over he falls over a lot and is often in need of a big cuddle. Thank fully we wee sent a set of the new range of plasters from Elastoplast to try out. I opened the packet and left it on the table and too my surprise they both got hold of the plasters and stuck them all over them selves. The plasters come as either Frozen or Star wars designs. The packs we were sent contains 16 plasters with different shapes.

Some Top 3 Tips for Turning Tears into Smiles

  • Distraction - If its not a bad fall / cut I always try and distract the kids by getting them to look at something else. Clouds, funny cars things in the sky 9 times out of 10 it works.
  • Sweet treats - in my bag I have a little first aid kit it has a few little plasters and antiseptic cream also a little treat to stop any tears.
  • Cuddle - If all else isn't working a massive cuddle always works. 

Elastoplast are a trusted name in many households. They are good quality and host some wonderful designs. The brand its self is very trusted and often found in peoples healthcare boxes. The most embarrassing thing is that I even use the kids plasters nothing like rocking a princess plaster when you need one.
