Sledding

Dress Warm:

  • Dress in layers (including boots!)

  • Kids should wear mittens or gloves, a scarf and a hat to keep in body heat

  • Keep their ears covered to prevent frostbite

Play Time

  • Set reasonable time limits

  • Call kids inside occasionally to warm up

  • Provide warm drinks, like hot cocoa

Too Cold

  • Look at both the temperature and the wind chill

  • Don’t ignore shivering - it is the first sign the body is losing heat
