Although you are doing everything possible to stop excessive sun exposure, there's another way to beat the heat!

    Wonder Works offers Bling Banz that are not only stylish and fun, but they are an amazing way to let you and your child know if they need to spend more time in the shade!

    - Put sunscreen on your child as normal.
    - Strap on the Bling Banz and have fun!
    - Periodically, your child can check their wrist to see where they stand with sun exposure. Is the cartoon on the far left dark? You're good to go! Is the one in the middle dark? You're still okay running in the sun, but be cautious! When the cartoon on the right is darkening, it's time to get in the shade and drink some water!
    - Once the cartoon on the left is dark again you’re ready to keep having fun in the sun!
