Building snowmen, sledging, snowballs and making snow angels, we all enjoy playing out with friends and family in the snow. But, did you know that accidents are more likely to happen during the cold winter months?
Before going outside, listen to your parent or guardian and wrap-up nice and warm with lots of layers, socks, gloves and a hat. Did you know you lose the most heat from your head? Wearing a hat will allow you to stay out for longer without feeling too cold.
Make sure you keep hydrated; the cold air means you lose more water from your body. Keep drinking water or even grab a warm drink or soup; they are a good hand warmer too!
Always remember if you start to shiver it’s a message from your body that you need to head inside and take a break, the snow will still be there later.
