Summer is the time of year when the sun’s rays are strongest and while we all love a little ‘Fun In The Sun‘, FabKids is here to help provide some tips and tricks for being ‘sun smart‘ and keeping your young ones happy and healthy all summer long!

1. Limit Outdoor Play Time During Peak Sun Hours: The sun’s rays are strongest from 10am – 4pm so be sure to be conscious and limit the amount of time your FabKid stays outdoors during that time frame.

2. Apply Sunscreen The Right Way: This may seem like an easy 1,2,3 process, but the way sunscreen is most effective, is if it is applied 30 minutes before heading outside and it is important to pick a sunscreen with SPF of 15 or higher (the higher the SPF, the stronger the protection)! Be sure to apply sunscreen generously to your FabKid and even a SPF lip balm to prevent chapped or dry lips!

3. Cover Up: Wearing protective clothing and accessories like a cover up, hat or sunglasses will help protect your FabKids on those hot and sunny summer days at the beach or park. If you are heading to the beach, be sure to bring a long a large umbrella!

4. Keep A Watchful Eye On Medications: If your FabKid takes any medications normally, it is important to keep in mind if they have any reactions while out in the sun. If you aren’t sure about the side effects, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

5. Lead By Example: Practice safe sun care yourself so you can be an example for your FabKids 🙂

Summer has long been regarded as a time for kids to relax and have fun.

School may be out for summer but there’s plenty of time to still learn. Check out our tips that will help your child keep learning all summer long.

Drowning is among the top causes of accidental death worldwide. Drowning can happen quickly and in less than 1 inch of water. Backyard swimming pools were the most common places where children under 5 drowned. The CDC reports that some of the key factors of drowning are lack of swimming ability, lack of barriers to prevent water access and lack of supervision while swimming. While these facts seem frightening, statistics show these drowning tragedies are preventable in a majority of cases. If your summer fun includes any kind of water activity, be sure to check out our water safety tips first!
