Summer Sun Tips
Remember sun safety. Enjoying the warm weather can be a lot of fun, but it’s important to remember sun safety, so you’ll want to be sure children wear sunscreen, hats, or other protection when spending time outdoors. As the weather warms up, you might consider doing a check of your sunscreen basket to ensure that every child has enough sunscreen to last through the season.
Don’t forget the H2O! In the warmer months, hydration is especially important. Encourage children to take water breaks regularly so that their bodies stay healthy and hydrated.
Have some extra clothes handy. On particularly warm days, the children in your care might enjoy water play to cool down. Before doing any activities that will get children wet, be sure that every child has a change of clothes available to switch into after the water activity. This will help avoid children having to spend too much time in uncomfortable, wet clothing.
