Our Top 10 Summer Safety Hacks to Keep Families Out of Harm's Way! by Elisa Schmitz

7 years ago

Summer hacks to keep your family safe!

  1. Take a smartphone photo of kids before entering theme parks – use in case they get lost.
  2. Put the Find My Friends app on kids’ devices.
  3. Download the First Aid by Red Cross app.
  4. Create a hydration station: Fill a large dispenser with water. Add fruit and ice!
  5. Use disposable cups, straws and Sharpies so everyone can personalize and track water intake.
  6. Apply sunscreen 20 minutes before water exposure. Take 20-minute breaks every few hours and reapply.
  7. Use spray bottles to cool kids and hot metal in cars.
  8. Freeze aloe vera gel in ice cube trays for sunburn relief.
  9. Write your name/number on rubber bracelets kids wear.
  10. Use glow stick necklaces/bracelets after dark.
