Top five kids’ spas
One usually thinks of a spa for adults but why not pamper your children to a spa say too?
Colleen Lanin, a Today.com contributor and founder/editor of TravelMamas.com, has put together a top five list of the best spas for kids.
Some parents are totally for a kid’s spa day and some are against it, go figure.
“Kids need to have relaxing time, too, and it’s good to get them in the habit of taking care of their hands, feet and skin,” says Heather Cagle, a mom from Macomb, Ill.
“I think it is a very strange thing to do with a child,” says Kerry Mullin, a mom from Columbia, Mo. “Completely wrong priorities.”
