Kids and sun safety

Whether you're looking for educational materials to present to children or a fun activity to share, the resources below are excellent tools to teach children about the importance of sun protection.

Skin cancer is something that kids hardly ever get, but it's important to teach children about the dangers of too much sun on their skin. Teaching children important habits now — like seeking shade, applying sunscreen and wearing protective clothing — can ensure that these habits become routine as they grow older.
