Every kid will tell you how much they love band-aids!
I love to wear band-aids. They make me look cool. I show them off when I go to school.
I put them on cuts and scratches and bruises. My beautiful Band-aids have so many uses.
I put them on scars and on patches of skin where a scrape or a nick never even has been.
They’re all over my arms, legs, knees, elbows and hips. I’d tell you more about them but I’ve got one on my lips.
