We all know it's important to re-apply sunscreen, but oh how carrying around a whole, full sized bottle of sunscreen can be cumbersome! Lighten up your load while keeping sunscreen application (and re-application!) in your family field trip routine with this simple tip.

Re-use a plastic pill container as an individual sunscreen bottle.

Wash and clean a plastic pill container. Then fill it will sunscreen. The perfect sunscreen container size to throw in your backpack or purse. It's handy if you carry different sorts of sunscreen (some for the baby, some for the water lovin' kids). That easy! Great for camp, cottage or taking to the beach.
