Slathering our kids withsunscreen is a summertime must -- but is there a mom out there who doesn't dread the task? When it comes to getting coated with the goopy white stuff, our squirmy, one-foot-out-the-door kids aren't ever on board. (Never mind that if you make one wrong move and sunscreen gets in their eyes, just add 45 minutes to your pool departure time.) 

Of course, we all know the basics: Use a product with a minimum SPF of 30 and apply (and reapply!) a lot of it. But how do you actually get it on? We asked moms for their best kid-tested strategies:

My kids ALWAYS make a fuss when it comes to putting on sunscreen.  How about your kiddos?  What are your best tips for getting them all slathered down? :)

9 yr old prefers the spray, my 4 year old hates the spray. Neither really gives me a hassle except if I try to use spray on little one. Then I need to spray on my hands and whip down.
