Cold weather is definitely here in Michigan and it looks like it will be staying here for some time. It’s very important that we dress our children and ourselves with appropriate winter gear when playing in the snow or practicing winter sports.
Some of the recommended gear includes: gloves or mittens, hats, thick winter jackets, snow boots and snow pants.
Please make sure you include all of the above-mentioned for your children as they most definitely need it when playing outside during school recess.
When practicing winter sports and outdoor activities, make sure you and your children take breaks and come inside to warm up. A helmet should be worn to prevent injuries and winter sports equipment should fit well, not too big and not too small.
Children should be supervised by an adult at all times when practicing winter sports.
