Lots of easy to implement ideas for teaching and learning about sun protection and being safe in the sun are provided in this article.
We discuss the value of capturing teachable moments and also that you can hold planned discussions on particular sun safety topics.
Then ideas are given for conversations you can have with infants, toddlers and young children during caregiving routines, such as nappy changing times and lunch times.
