Having two little rather rambunctious little boys keeps me on my toes daily. Being the boisterous, energetic little scamps that they are, makes my maternal instincts go in to overdrive. I feel the need to smother them in cotton wool and guard every action! I think we all battle with ourselves at some point trying to protect our kids from harm. But on the other hand kids should be able to be kids and explore freely whilst having fun.
My two have no fear what so ever. Climbing, jumping, wrestling, diving! It’s all in a days work here. And with the daredevil lifestyle they lead, comes bruises, grazes and bumps. It’s inevitable that tumbles are going to happen, it’s part and parcel of being young.
Tears after a tumble are generally short lived. A magic kiss from me always makes the poorly feel better. If that doesn’t quite cure it, then a plaster will! Especially when they have a favourite character on them.
Since 1924, Elastoplast has been sold in six countries across the world: Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom. Since its founding, Elastoplast products have been renowned internationally for their quality.

So that’s how I turn tears into smiles with some magic from me and Elastoplast! Together we make a pretty awesome team I reckon!
