  • Warm Clothing– Wrap children up in multiple layers of clothing to make for easy removal in case it is too warm. It’s important to keep their heads covered as most heat escapes through your head.

  • Winter sports and play–  Make sure all equipment used for winter sports is in working order and fits properly.  Always supervise your children while they are outside playing. Take breaks to hydrate your children during playtime.
