Tan Or Draw Your Own "TATTOO" For The Summer! Your Kids Will Love This!

When my sister and I were little girls, we spent a lot time in our backyard...soaking up the sun and swimming in our pool.  Yes...we were spoiled to have a pool, but I'll admit that we took full advantage of it too...since it was over 100 degrees most days in the summer in our hometown.  
Having a pool was a luxury in that heat...for sure!

One of the fun things we used to do, when we were "SUNBATHING", was to find a cute shaped sticker or a marker to draw a shape to put on our tummy, biceps or legs, so that as we it would leave the outline after the sticker was removed. It was a fun way to have a temporary shape on our body, without leaving a lasting impression or much harm (though I know that the sun exposure probably wasn't the best for us).

It's funny to me, because my girl's and I were outside soaking up some sun this last weekend (with sunscreen carefully applied) and I told them about doing this.  My oldest daughter went in the house, came out with a pen and I drew a cute little heart on her belly.  WE obviously didn't get enough sun to really leave an outline, but I know this won't be the last time we do it either!  

I see lots of fun times ahead...with my girls, with temporary TAN shaped outlines and reminiscent memories from my childhood all intertwined!
