    How to keep your kids cool in the heat

    How to keep your kids cool in the heat
    Keeping kids cool in hot weather is essential to ensure their comfort and prevent overheating. Here are some tips to help you keep your little ones cool on hot sunny days:

    1. Encourage your kids to drink plenty of water throughout the day, even if they don't feel thirsty. Offer them water frequently and carry a water bottle when you're out and about. Avoid sugary drinks and opt for hydrating options like water, fruit-infused water or natural fruit juices.

    2. Dress your kids in lightweight, loose-fitting, and breathable clothing made from natural fabrics like cotton or linen. Light-coloured clothes reflect the sun's rays and help keep them cooler. Don't forget wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses to protect them from the sun.

    3. Seek shade whenever possible, especially during the hottest parts of the day. If you're outdoors, set up a canopy, use umbrellas, or find natural shade from trees. Limit direct exposure to the sun, especially between 11 am and 3 pm when the sun's rays are the strongest.

    4. Apply sunscreen with a high SPF (at least 30) on your kids' exposed skin, even on cloudy days. Reapply it every few hours, especially after swimming.

    5. Offer your kids cool showers or baths to help lower their body temperature. You can also wet a washcloth with cool water and place it on their forehead, neck, or wrists to provide instant relief.

    6. If the heat is extreme, it's best to stay indoors during the hottest part of the day. Close curtains or blinds to keep the sun's heat out. Use fans or air conditioning to create a comfortable indoor environment.

    7. Engage your kids in water play activities like running through a sprinkler, playing with water toys, or having a water balloon fight. Set up a small inflatable pool in your backyard or visit a local swimming pool.

    8. Prepare frozen treats like fruit popsicles, frozen grapes, or yogurt popsicles. These can help keep kids cool while providing a refreshing snack.

    9. Organise indoor activities like crafts, puzzles, board games, or movie time to keep kids entertained while avoiding the heat. You can also visit air-conditioned indoor play areas or libraries.

    10. Keep an eye out for signs of heat exhaustion or heatstroke, such as excessive thirst, dizziness, fatigue, headache, rapid heartbeat, or flushed skin. If you notice any of these symptoms, move your child to a cool place, provide fluids, and seek medical attention if necessary.

    Taking these precautions will help your kids stay cool and comfortable during hot weather while enjoying their summer activities.
