With warmer weather comes the opportunity to spend more time outdoors, enjoying all that nature has to offer. Be sure to stay safe and healthy during any outdoor activities with these tips.
When taking your preschool child to the playground…
If you’re looking to get some energy out or enjoy sunshine and fresh air, consider taking a trip to the local park. Make sure to keep a close eye on your little ones (especially if it’s crowded). Remind your preschoolers to wash their hands after touching any playground equipment and being exposed to many germs.
Approach animals with caution…
You can bet you’ll come across a handful of people walking their dogs when taking the kids for a walk. Teach your children to always ask the handler for permission before approaching his pet, and be aware of body language signs indicating that the dog may not be receptive to strangers at the moment.
Temperatures are heating up, and so is the need for sunscreen! When searching for the right product, look for sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. You can even purchase a moisturizer with built in SPF for added protection. Whether you’re having a pool day, or simply spending time outdoors, sunscreen is a must.
And stay hydrated!
One of the most important things to remember is to stay hydrated. Drink lots of water, go for a swim, or whip out some fruity popsicles for a refreshing treat. Remember to stay cool while staying safe this spring.
