As a family of 5 we go through winter with lots of colds and sniffles
Vicks are trying to help families with tips to getting through colds with kids #VicksTricks.
We try and make the best of things and not let colds get us down too much, these are a few of the things we do.
These are 9 things we do(and 1 that we don’t):
1) Play Doctor doctor, the doctor usually prescribes a few chocolate buttons. Who am I to argue? Doctors orders.
2. Play dough is always a great activity to keep their minds off the cold.
3. Lots of stories.
4. Lots of cuddles
5. Watch a movie.
6. Colouring in.
7. The easiest way to get some food into the kids is to make it fun. They love a picnic snack in the lounge.
8. Silly selfies and snap chat.
9. Magic Tricks

One thing we have learnt, going shopping with a cold is a no-no.
For as long as I can remember, Vicks* has always been a product I associate with colds. Growing up I remember my mum putting Vicks on our chests and backs, that sudden relief and being able to breath easier always seemed like magic!
We were sent some Vicks first defence nasal spray** to try(for 12 years+), I wasn’t really keen on the idea of a nasal spray but it is really quick and easy to use and not half as bad as I imagined.
Kate has had a few colds this winter, she just doesn’t seem to be able to shake them. We have bought a Vicks humidifier that uses Vicks Vapo pads and it seems to have made a difference, she’s getting a full nights sleep, which is so important when you feeling under the weather.
