Staying Safe in the Winter!
Winter is a really fun time of year — it's great to have snowball fights, build snowmen, and construct igloos. But while you're out having fun, you have to know how to be safe. When it's cold outside and you're not prepared, you can feel uncomfortable or even rotten. Lucky for you, learning how to stay safe is easy!
Dressing in layers is the best way to stay warm in the cold, because you can start out with lots of clothes to keep you warm and then peel them off once you start to heat up. Depending on where you live and how cold it is, some kids may need more layers, some less. But if you're in doubt, go for more layers to start and they can always come off later. Whatever you do, always leave your coat on - that's one layer that should stay!
