It only takes one bad sunburn to double a child’s risk for skin cancer later in life. But what do you do if your kids won't sit still long enough for you to rub in a lotion? Even the squirmiest of kids will be protected from sunburn with a long-lasting stick application instead of labor-intensive lotion or a spray that sometimes misses the mark. Swipe the Skin Cancer Foundation-approved, mineral-based, water-resistant, PABA-free Sun Bum SPF 30+ Face Stick across your kids’ cheeks like a sun-safety pro. Its petite pocket size and packaging (no leakage!) makes it convenient when your beach bag is already packed to the rafters, too. $8.99, Urban Outfitters,
