Winter safety: Advice for parents and kids


Winter safety: Advice for parents and kids

:: Highlights


  1. Young children generate less body heat, and get cold more quickly than adults.
  2. Check often that children are staying warm and dry while playing outside in the winter.
  3. Dress your child in layers of clothing that can be put on and taken off easily.
  4. Infants being pulled in a sled need extra bundling. Because they aren't moving, they can't generate body heat the way a playing child can.
  5. Winter is a great season for outdoor activities, such as sledding and skating. Cold weather, ice, and snow can be fun but also dangerous for children. The following tips will help parents and children enjoy winter activities safely.



In general:

Children shouldn’t play outside alone. Establish a buddy system with one or more friends and have them look out for one another. Children younger than 8 years of age should always be supervised outside. Check every so often on older children who are playing outdoors for a long time.
Check often to see that your child is warm and dry. Younger children should take regular breaks and come inside for a warm drink.
Never send children outside in extreme weather conditions such as snowstorms.
Do not send your child outside to play if the temperature or the windchill is reported as -27oC (-16oF) or lower. At these temperatures, exposed skin will begin to freeze.
Help children choose play areas with a warm shelter nearby (e.g., near home or a friend’s home).
Apply sunscreen to exposed skin, even when it’s cloudy.
