I know many of the children of my American friends have already started the new school year. In Nova Scotia (and I believe most of Canada), students don’t start until after the Labour Day long weekend! I don’t mind though because that gives me more time to get ready!
Sports & extra-curricular activities will also be starting in September. Both my girls play sports so it’s important to have a well-stocked first aid kit for all those bumps and scrapes that seem to go along with any kind of physical activity. I’m glad to see them both active and interested in sports (they don’t get that from me <=== klutz!).
Band-Aid & Neosporin are must-have products to pick up for your first aid kit. Here’s a rundown of a few to grab on your next shopping trip!
BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages featuring The Muppets: These bandages feature your favorite Muppets characters in their usual wacky and wild poses! They are available on Amazon.com and at mass retailers with a suggested retail price of $2.99.
NEOSPORIN® First Aid Antibiotic Ointment: NEOSPORIN® heals wounds two days faster and provides long-lasting infection protection to help minimize the appearance of scars from cuts and scrapes. Available at mass retailers with a suggested retail price of $8.99.
BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages with QUILTVENT® Technology: The new technology creates air channels to let wounds breathe even better than before, while still protecting from dirt and germs. It also wicks away fluid to keep wounds clean. Suggested retail price may vary.
