My kids love band-aids. LOVE band-aids. The little one likes to wear them much the same way you or I would accessorize with jewelry! Someone once asked in such a concerned way what she had done to her head. You see, there was a very large pink bandage on her forehead. What had she done? Absolutely nothing! She just likes band-aids.
But then, there's the issue of removing the band-aid. You know what I'm talking about don't you? You remember pulling them off as a kid and your mom telling you "Just do it as fast as you can. It'll hurt less." don't you?? But it never did hurt less. My skin is aching as I think about pulling off a band-aid. Ugh!!
Here's a secret for you: To make removing the beloved bandage less traumatic, rub some hand sanitizer on the back. The alcohol in the sanitizer dissolves (I guess!) the adhesive and they come right off.
I think I loved this tip most when my kids were babies. They would come home from the doctor with four band-aids on their teeny tiny legs from immunizations. Removing those suckers was worse than the shots! Hooray for Purell!
What about you? Any band-aid tips?
