Before heading outside to play, keep in mind both metal and plastic play equipment can get very hot, and even burn your skin. At the same time, playing in the heat can be exhausting.

If you start to notice your child becoming overheated, get them to a cool spot and make sure they drink water. Make sure they’re also wearing a hat and sunscreen when they’re outside.
