My 3 year old grandson hates having sunblock put on him. He screams and fights you all the way. Any ideas on how to make this easier and more fun? Nana just hates putting him through this, but knows the importance of keeping him protected.

Have you tried the spray on sunblock? I like it because it is fast and easy. Also, do you use lip balm with SPF of at least 15? I just had a lip biopsy done, and I do wish I had used lip balm years ago.

Have you tried the colored sun blocks available for kids? I tell them we are going to dress up like the Indians with war paint and it works! I found a cheap indian headdress with feathers and ive turned it into a game.

I would give the spray-on kind a try. The kind that comes in an aerosol can. I bet since it isn't slimy feeling he would like it better.
