Heat of the Summer
Why not stay in the air conditioned house and eat ice cream while sitting on the kitchen floor when the temperature outside is 93 with a real feel of 103? Talk about hot and that is exactly what it felt like about a week ago! What have you been doing to have fun and stay cool this summer? Cecelia and Margaret like to play in the pool, on their splash pad, and with their sand and water toys, They enjoy cooling off by eating ice cream, icees and drinking lots of cold water! The girls also like riding around in their toy cars and hanging out in their play house. They enjoy going down the slide, swinging, and chalk drawing. When it isn’t super hot, they like going on stroller rides as well as riding bikes and trikes. Cecelia and Margaret also love walking independently which is why mom and dad are always right next to them in order to keep them safe!
Playing it Safe
Cecelia and Margaret actually inform me when it’s too hot and when they would like to go inside because of the heat. It’s usually verbalized more through Cecelia since she is at the age where she can say more words and talk in complete sentences sometimes. I also always keep an eye on the actual temperature, the real feel temperature, and the humidity. I’ve read where young children actually get hotter faster than adults which is why it is important to make sure your kids are staying hydrated and that you take lots of indoor breaks to insure that the heat isn’t harming them. How do you make sure you are taking the crucial safety measures that allow your children to have fun and stay safe? What steps will you take the next time you step out into the heat, especially with young children?
