Running around in the summer sun is what being a kid is all about! From pool parties to family vacation at the beach, though, the sun can be hazardous to kids and parents alike. Staying safe from the sun while you enjoy the summer months is key. Here are some great ways to stay hydrated and protected from the sun in Lanham, Maryland.
Stay Hydrated and Keep the Fun Rolling
Dehydration can dry up the fun in a hurry! It is super important that you keep yourself and your kids full of fluid during summer playtime. Set timers on your phone with a reminder to drink every 45 minutes at a minimum. If you have a picky drinker on your hands, try snacks high in electrolytes like watermelon.
Don’t Get Sunburnt
Sunburn can ruin the day in a hurry and it doesn’t take long at all for the intense rays of the summer sun to start cooking. At Lanham Skate Center, our advice is to use water resistant sport sunscreen with at least 30 SPF. Make sure you get every nook and cranny on the little ones too. Infants and toddlers have much more sensitive skin than we do so remember to reapply often and keep them out of direct sunlight as much as possible.
Bring the Fun Indoors!
A great way to escape the summer heat is by rolling into Lanham Skate Center for a fun-filled day on skates! We have full concessions, a climate-controlled environment, and nonstop fun. Roller skating is a summer classic that’s fun for the whole family and is a great way for the kids to get some exercise.
