Safety Tips: Summer Edition
As the weather warms, it is likely that you will be spending more time outside. Outdoor play is necessary for children, to move their muscles and enjoy the fresh air. It is important to use sunscreen to protect from the sun's rays, and also important to be aware of possible disease-bearing insects.
Check out our Remaining Safe from Insects tips. We also feature a section on Fun in the Sun safety to ensure a fun and safe summer.
