Playing Outside in Winter: Tips to Keep Kids Warms & Safe
Heading outside for some wintertime fun like sledding, throwing snowballs, or ice skating can be a sure-fire cure for cabin fever. It's also a great way for kids to get the 60 minutes of daily exercise they need. Just be sure your child is dressed right and know when it's time to come in and warm up.
Children exposed to extreme cold for too long and without warm, dry, breathable clothing can get frostbite or even life-threatening hypothermia.
Little bodies, big chill
Children are more at risk from the cold than adults. Because their bodies are smaller, they lose heat more quickly. Especially if they're having fun, they may be less likely to come inside when they're getting too cold.
