The summer has been beautiful where I live at and I hope your enjoying yours! There is something pretty special about working with children in the summer! I feel like everyone is in a good mood and we have so much fun especially with water play.
Going to the pool, or a sprinkler park is such a common activity to do with children. The time flies by and a couple of hours turns into 5 or 6 hours outdoor. We have to make sure our children are safe during water play, and that everyone is protected from sun exposure. I like taking the children to a rec pool where there are rest periods for children. Children learn early that our body needs rest from the constant water activity.
Sunscreen is needed for anyone that has skin. Protecting our skin from hours of direct sunlight is important for all children and adults. Even mermaids wear sunscreen [lol]
Another, method for skin protection is wearing some type of cover up, or a hat. I love the sun and anyone that knows me knows the summer is my favorite season. I'm outdoor with children all day in the summer and I work hard to make sure everyone is safe in water play, or outdoor activities. What are your favorite summer activities with children?
