Safety Tips for Kids Playing in the Snow
Being outdoors in below-freezing weather can sometimes be dangerous. We recommend following this temperature guide from Boys Town Pediatrics. Make sure your kids have the proper apparel for outdoor play. Your kids will need to layer their clothing to avoid getting chilled and frostbite.
Anytime it's 20 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, follow protocol. This also means taking breaks to warm up! Lastly, stay indoors if it's 20 degrees Fahrenheit or below. Especially keep your babies indoors! Keep them safe and healthy this winter.
Kids get excited and may not want to go indoors when they're having fun but let them know it's for their safety. If you need help convincing them to get indoors, you can always plan a fun indoor snow day that involves hot chocolate and using an indoor s'mores maker.
Your little ones are going to love every memory made on snow days!

A five-star review: "Ordered this last minute for impending snow storms. Showed up on time and it was so worth it. 13 yo son loved it, both as a scooter and to just sit down on (like a sled) for steeper slopes. Saved the day for a rare Seattle snowstorms. Had seen other reviewers talking about the missing light, but ours had one built in and worked great."

A five-star review: "We bought 6 for Christmas. The are very thick and durable. The unbreakable resin is unbreakable. The sled folded and returned to normal shape. It is slippery and with the grooves speeds downhill carving turns as you lean. I was able to do a 90 degree turn, lean on the uphill side and perform an emergency STOP. It was like what skiers skaters and snowboarders do to stop."
