Beat the Heat with Summer Safety!
Wednesday, July 31, 2019

We all know the importance of getting our children playing outside, but it can be difficult depending on where you live as the heat can quickly become unbearable even for adults, let alone children. So how do you strike the balance of letting them enjoy the outdoors while keeping them as safe as possible? Here are a few things to keep in mind to make the most of the summer sun!

Dress them appropriately

Light fabrics and few layers are key. Your children are likely to work up a sweat while running around and enjoying themselves, so light clothing enables them to do so as much as possible!

Keep them hydrated

Children aren't always fully aware of what they need - they can often get wrapped up in the moment of playing with their friends and forget to take a break to take care of themselves. Be sure to bring plenty of extra water for the day and remind them to take breaks.

If possible, stay near air-conditioned spaces

Even if you're not at home, odds are that the local park is near some sort of air-conditioned facility. Most parks will have shaded shelters scattered in the area, and some will even have buildings with air conditioning to give families a place to cool off.

If it's just a shelter and it's still too hot, check to see if there is a local library or shop you can enter to take a break for a while.

Check the weather

Weather forecasts have become accurate enough to help plan your day according to the temperature. Check the hourly predictions to make sure that you're avoiding the highest temperatures as much as possible - mornings and evenings tend to be  the best times to stay outside as the sun begins rising and setting.

If it's too hot outside and your kids want to keep playing, we have a great indoor playground that we're sure they'll enjoy! We keep the entire space cool to ensure that your children stay healthy and never overheat! Feel free to contact us for more information.
