    Good article on hearing protection! We have a lot of the same recommendations on our blog dedicated to taking kids to festivals and concerts!

    Also know it’s important to get these before you need them and break your little ones into wearing them in small chunks of time. If you try for the first time at the next concert or sporting event they may not want to keep them on at all!
