4 Tips to a Safe Summer in Hiram, GA

Have a safe and healthy summer of fun at Sparkles.

Summer is our favorite time of year here at Sparkles in Hiram! Days spent at the lake, backyard barbecues, and family getaways are just a few reasons why we can’t get enough of summer. Sunny days and hot temperatures provide a great opportunity for people to enjoy the beautiful outdoors, however, it can also be the cause of potentially dangerous situations if you do not take the right precautions. Have a fun, safe and healthy summer by following these tips.

Sun Safety for Your Family

  1. Sunscreen- Protect your family from ultraviolet (UV) rays by applying sunscreen before going outside. Doctors recommend using sunscreen with at least SPF (sun protection factor) 15, preferably higher, at least 30 minutes before heading outside.
  2. Water- Make sure to drink plenty of water before going outside and take frequent breaks to re-hydrate while you are out. If you or your child is not a fan of plain water, try putting some fresh fruit slices in your water bottle for a little flavor infusion!
  3. Shade- If your family will be outside for longer periods make sure to protect their face, scalp, ears, and neck by wearing a hat. Not only does a hat provide shade, but it can also prevent sunburns on forgotten areas of the face like the tops of the ears, nose, and top of the head.
  4. Indoor Activities- The hottest time of day is in the afternoon, usually between 12pm and 3pm. To avoid heat stroke or dehydration, take your playtime inside where you can hide away from the Georgia heat. Playtime doesn’t have to stop when you come inside. Get out of the heat and head over to our Hiram location where we have a variety of fun activities for you and your family to enjoy in a cool, air-conditioned environment.
