Practical Life - Applying Sunscreen

The idea for this work came from one of my Facebook readers (thank you, Mary!) and I thought it was absolutely brilliant given our current season. Here in Bermuda the sun beats down on you and I make a point to cover my kiddos in sunscreen whenever we're out and about. James is well old enough to learn to apply sunscreen himself and, knowing Mr. Independent, he'll love having free reign of that bottle!

To do this work, James will first use one of the wipes in the large container to clean his face. He'll then squeeze a small amount of sunscreen from the bottle onto the small dish. Holding the mirror (the silver thing in the photo), he'll use his finger to dab a tiny bit of sunscreen on his face, applying a little at a time until he has complete coverage. He'll then use another wipe to clean his hands (and face since this is a schooltime activity).

~Thank you for your comments!~


  1. What a great idea! I'm definitely adding this to our roster. If we practice this winter, he should have it perfected by next summer. Brilliant.

  2. I can't get enough of your blog! Every idea is amazing, simple, and perfect!

  3. Wow! What a great idea! Your blog is FULL of wonderful info!! Thank you for sharing!


  4. we wear sunscreen all year round. The worst burns are in winter the sun reflects off the white snow making for intense rays and burns.

    great idea
