Judi Cranston, children’s composer and founder/director of kindyRock has written a musical creation simply named ‘Slip, Slop, Slap and Wrap Song’ which merges her passion for education, fun and cancer prevention in a cool and catchy way. Thanks to NZ On Air funding, with advice and support from the Cancer Society, Judi’s passion is coming to life.
The song, aimed at pre-schoolers and young primary school children, is a fun way to encourage Kiwis to make smart choices this summer. It reminds people to be SunSmart even on a cloudy day and to Slip, Slop, Slap and Wrap every day.
