Deb passed along this kid-friendly alternative to chemical mosquito repellant:
My little girl can't stand having anything on her skin, including sunscreen, and I hate coating her in toxic bug repellents. But she's one of those mosquito-magnet types. So now she just puts on an insect repellant wristband and she's covered. They've got a mild citrus-y odor but don't make her smell like she fell into a citronella candle or anything. They last about 100 hours and come in a re-sealable bag. I just love them — with Spring Break and camp right around the corner, I'm stocking up.
She later sent me this PS:
Sometimes I hang the wristbands on chairs while we're sitting out on the patio and they work well, too.
