Band-Aid, Neosporin, and KaBOOM Want you to #PlayOn

We remember our youth as one that as filled with lots of various activities, ranging from planting sunflowers, playing hide and seek, running and jumping just because, and reading. At the time, we only saw it as fun, but as we got older, we recognized just how important our playtime was, not just to give our parents a break from our nagging and neediness, but for our general well-being. In an age where video games have practically overtaken our lives, Band-Aid Brand, Neosporin, and KaBOOM (a national non-profit dedicated to giving kids the childhood they all deserve, filled with balance and active play) understands the ability to play, create and discover is crucial to development during all stages of life. With celebrity mom, Tamera Mowry-Housley as the event’s host, attendees enjoyed a few hours of jump rope, Tic Tac Toe, Jenga, planting herbs, a little everyday play of toy tossing, and making our own Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches (in our case marshmallow, Nutella and bananas).

Tamera Mowry-Housley also shared her experience with and the importance of play time as a child, and as parents. She also noted the importance of being prepared with essential products. According to research by Ka-BOOM, playtime “helps kids grow to be healthy, happy, and successful, through an experience full of creativity, exploration, physical activity, friendship, and adventure.” Taking some time out for play is a must at any age; it is essential for physical, mental, and social growth, especially for children.

Band-Aid, and Neosporin understands the need for Play and has introduced a new program called #PlayOn, as a way to strengthen commitment to helping families live more balanced, active and playful lives. Of course with playing comes little accidents and having first-aid care on hand is a must. To keep you prepared, when you purchase three or more first-aid products, such as Band-Aid Brand Adhesives Bandages, Johnson & Johnson first-aid products, Neosporin, and Benadryl Anti-Itch topical products, they’re offering a free first aid bag to build your own first aid kit, at participating retailers.

What we learned at this event is, there should be time for play because kids are missing out. Time for play is disappearing not only from home, but from schools as well. Whether you’re enjoying board games, planting, running or jumping, playtime is important, no matter your age…..just as long as you’re prepared with first-aid products as a precaution.
