Too Hot for Safe Outdoor Play? Bring the Outdoors In!

During the dog days of summer, we understand that some days are just too hot to safely play outside. In our Tinkergarten classes we use Iowa’s Child Care Resource and Referral weather chart to judge safe weather for outdoor play including heat indexes. This is a helpful and research based resource to consult when you’re deciding if it is safe for children to play outside throughout the summer heat.

Is it too hot this week for safe outdoor play? Check out this article from Tinkergarten's blog More Than Mudpies to find wonderful ways to bring the outdoors in and make the most of indoor play when you can’t go outside!
