Question: Why are the Nexcare Animal Strips good for kids? How can they be used?
Diana Cornall: Kids are always prone to bumps, bruises, cuts and scrapes and it's a recipe for tears. These situations can cause a dirty wound which is prone to infection. It's important to make the experience as atraumatic as possible. Clean the wound with running water and possibly an antibacterial soap if particularly dirty. Pat the skin dry and apply a fun strip or bandage such as the Nexcare Animal Print Bandages so the tears stop flowing. Kids can then be strong as a tiger, smart like a giraffe and waterproof as a croc.
Question: What are your top tips for preparing for a family fun day out?
Diana Cornall: Pack and plan based on your activity. Run through in your mind what will happen on the day out and plan accordingly.

Question: How can parents continue to protect their kids through all of life's fun and games?

Diana Cornall: Have a look online – there may be a lot of activities that you can do in your local areas. They don't always have to cost money! Get out and see the natural wonders that our country has – we are so fortunate to have beaches, mountains, rivers and stunning national parks. Sometimes just packing a lunch and going for a drive in a direction you've never been is a wonderful way to explore and come across wonderful parks and interesting places.
