Ah, summertime. The kids are having a blast swimming in the pool, building a sand castle at the beach, and flagging down the ice cream truck for a sweet treat. While all of these fun activities are different, they do have one thing in common: they're under the sun's scorching rays. And one great way to protect your child's skin from the sun is to apply sunscreen.
According to the American Pediatric Association, the sunscreen must have an SPF of at least 15. And while you may automatically grab the sunscreen lotion off the shelf at the store, you may want to consider switching to sunscreen sticks. They've been growing in popularity lately, and it's no wonder why — they're easy, not as runny or messy, don't run when mixed with water, and don't drip into your kids' eyes. If this sounds like something you need (and it definitely is), keep reading for the top five sunscreen sticks for kids (all of which have an SPF well over 15).
