At what temp is it too hot for your kids to be outside?

I've been out with my two year old in the high 90s with gross humidity for a few hours each day. There's no way I could keep her in! What do you do in the extreme heat?

We watch tv, color, build with blocks, take a long bath, read stories,blow bubbles, tickle fight, tea party. Probably some other things I'm forgetting. This mama hates to be hot and sweaty so we find ways to play inside.

It's been hot here but I still send em out. Spray them down in sunscreen and turn n the sprinkler or slip and slide, and they are good for hours. They drink lots of water and are good. I don't believe in keeping them inside in the heat at home, it's easy enough for them to keep cool.

We have a pool so no heat is too high for us. We also go to the beach, children's museum, aquarium etc

We have been out every day except in the upper 90's with high humidity. Then I try to wait until evenings or go in the early morning. That way we don't dehydrate. Especially since my toddler has been known to refuse to drink for long periods of time.

IDK - but we apparently haven't reached that temp yet. High 90's and humid didn't seem to phase them as long as they had plenty of cold water available to drink.

I wimp out waaay before they do.

For us anything over 107-108 is pushing it. We were at 118 for a week and it was awful so the kids stayed inside.


But today it's 106 and we would be outside but the air quality is awful. There is a fire burning 16 thousand acres right up the hill so we are in until its clear.

It's been too hot here for a long time. (over 115) But, if I had a better yard setup, i'd still send them out.

I have a lot of concrete, and it's HOT. If they fell, or took their shoes off, it would cause a burn. If I had more shade, and more grass, i'd turn on the misters and we'd go play with the water table or something.

They go out in all temps. They come in when uncomfortable. When they were small they came in when I was uncomfortable.

Re: At what temp is it too hot for your kids to be outside?

We don't go out really after about 100. It is just now getting to about that temp during the day here. Got above it regularly, of course, when we lived in Vegas. On days when it will be above that, we still will try and go out, it it will be first thing in the morning or after dinner when it is cooler.

The heat is one reason we school year round. If it is too hot in the afternoons for anyone to want to be outside, we might as well do school so we can take off more time when the weather is nice.
