The SolarSafe reminds you to keep your kids covered in the sun

Worried about your children's skin getting too exposed to the sun? This SolarSafe might be just the simple reminder you need to keep them covered in all that gooey sunblock.

I know I'm a flake about when to cover myself with lotion, I couldn't imagine trying to keep kids covered all the time. To use the SolarSafe you simply expose it to sunlight until the band turns purple. Then you coat the band with sunscreen while you are coating your child. When the band changes color its time to either re-slather or run for the shade.

The great thing is you can write your child's identification info on it if you are worried about them wandering off. It costs $10 for a pack of 7.
