Sun Angels UV protection sleeves are designed to keep your little angel sun safe without overheating. Have you ever been out in the sun and wished you had an extra layer of protection for your child’s skin? When the temperatures are already 90+ degrees adding a bulky shirt isn’t something we can do. Sun Angels are sleeves that are designed to protect your child’s arms without the added bulk of another shirt.
Sun Angels sun sleeves are made from a 60% polyester/35% cotton jersey/5%(latex-free) spandex fabric blend making them lightweight, breathable, and easy to put on. With a UPF of 50+ you can feel comfortable knowing your child has another layer of protection from the sun. Plus, Sun Angels offers a variety to cute and fashionable designs to choose from like the Summer Strips Blue.
Each sleeve is made with a thin elastic band at the top to keep them from slipping while your child plays. Not only did the sleeve slip on with minimum effort, my son was able to play all day at the park without complaining once about his arm sleeves, or having them slip at all. Unlike his hats which he begs to take off again and again, he has yet to ask me to remove his Sun Angels.
Emily’s Thoughts on Sun Angels Sun Sleeves
I try to find shaded places for my son to play, and I always insist on sunscreen when we are heading out to play. Being four my son is wiggly and anxious to get playing. Slipping on Sun Angels just added a little piece of mind for me knowing that he is as covered as I can get without taking a lot of time. I also have an infant who loves to be outside with his brother. I have looked, but not found many sun options for him. Sun Angels makes sleeves for babies as well as boys and girls. I look forward to getting a pair for my baby as well.
The sleeves are also machine washable which makes them easy to care for. Like most moms I have a ton of things in my diaper bag, and space is at a premium. Since the sun sleeves are so thin they take up barely any room at all in my bag. I like knowing I can slip them into the pocket of my diaper bag right next to our sunscreen and have them for all our summer trips to the park and more!
How would these sun sleeves benefit your child?
