Winter Safety

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
