Sledding Safety


Wintertime is here (or will be soon in Michigan!) and lots of winter sports will be available from skiing & snowboarding to sledding! Before you hit the hills with your super-fast saucer sled, check out these tips we gleaned from the article found at Nationwide Kids. Be sure to check out the full article for even more tips!
– Dress Warm. Make sure kids are dressed appropriately with either a snow suit or jacket & snow pants. Gloves, hats, & boots are a MUST!

– Choose the Right Sled. For the younger kids, choose a sled that is steerable so they have a little more control. Older kids with a little more experience should be able to handle the sheet-type sleds, saucer sleds, & toboggan-type sleds.

-Always Have an Adult. An adult should always accompany your child(ren) when sledding in case of accidents and to keep watch for child predators.

– Feet First. Always sled feet-first, using your feet to turn/brake if necessary.

– Watch Where You Sled. Choose a sledding area that is not near a street or body of water. Never sled down a driveway, parking lot, or anywhere cars are present.

Be sure to read the full article from Nationwide Childrens for more information on being safe while sledding!
