At Play

Playing in the great outdoors is a fantastic way for your child to build strength and endurance, and stay active. Reduce the risk of injury with these simple steps:


  • Look for age-appropriate equipment at playgrounds, like tot swings, and straight slides for toddlers.
  • Check playground equipment for rusted parts and loose splinters that can pinch a child's skin, and metal equipment that can heat up quickly in hot weather.
  • Supervise kids closely when they're near water. Never rely on life vests, water wings, floating baby seats, or swimming lessons alone to keep your child safe.
  • Apply sunscreen of at least 30 SPF to your child's arms, legs, shoulders, neck, face, and ears 30 minutes before going outside and every 2 hours after.
  • Encourage your child to play in the shade between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when the sun's rays are the strongest.
