That special time of year is almost upon us, and I’m visibly excited; giddy in fact. To be honest, my kids are equally excited, this really being “their time”. It’s almost Spring Break!
A week off school ( for some it’s even two weeks now!) to get away, or stay home and adventure close by. This year, my kids are being treated to a wonderful experience of skiing with my parents. The snow has been plentiful this year, and the powder on the hills fluffy and inviting. This is a trip they’ve been looking forward to for months, special time with their grandparents, doing something they all love.
While my parents are the super organized type, I have been putting together a few tidbits to help them out for the epic adventure, just small items you don’t know you need until BOOM, you need them.
While my kids are good travellers, the winding roads up a mountain can take their toll on the strongest tummy, so I’ve tossed in some GRAVOL Kids™ Dye Free Quick Dissolve Chewables. They help prevent and treat nausea, vomiting and dizziness from motion sickness, have a yummy orange flavour (that taste way better than what I had when I was a kid!) and dissolve so quickly that your kid likely won’t even ask for water.
My parents are getting up there in age, although they sure can go all day! They are both fit and active, but I know a day of skiing with three kids might be more than they bargained for so I’ve included something to ease their tired muscles after a day on the slopes. RUB A535™ Anti-Inflammatory Cream with Arnica is my go to cream for fast pain relief, so I know my parents will appreciate having some along.They can put it right on the spot where their sore muscle is, or where they’re having joint pain, and it will work so fast! The best part is it’s not greasy like some other products so they don’t have to worry about it staining their clothes.
Even though they’ll be outside enjoying the snow, I can’t rely on the weather to give the kids the vitamin D they need every day, so in goes their Vitafusion™ Vitamin D. Known as the sunshine vitamin, Vitamin D supports bone and teeth health – Vitafusion™ Vitamin D also comes in a delicious gummy and is the perfect alternative to a traditional hard-to-swallow pill. My kids love their daily gummy and I love knowing they are getting a much needed dose of an essential vitamin.
Whatever you have planned for spring break this year, don’t forget to pack for those unexpected moments, you’ll be glad you did!
