TORONTO, April 17, 2015 /CNW/ - The season of warmer weather, rolled down windows and the return of barbeques, picnics and music festivals is right around the corner. Along with the excitement to get back outside, it's important to remember how to prepare and plan for outdoor fun in a way that will keep everyone as safe as possible. It doesn't matter what you're doing – the same rules apply for a 45-minute little league baseball game and a 5-day canoe trip in Algonquin Park.
Plan ahead with lists
For many outdoor activities, a quick list will help you organize what to throw in a bag or purse so you don't forget anything. Packing water to avoid hydration is a must for any outing. Whether your list is food for a picnic, sports equipment and snacks for a little league game or a tent for a music festival, your mind will be more at ease on-site if you know you have everything you need.
To avoid unnecessary pain and discomfort, Natrapel repellent is great to keep handy when on-the-go to help ward off bugs – and the itch eraser After Bite will provide instant relief from bites and ticks just in case repellent wasn't applied soon enough.
It doesn't take long to get a sunburn or become dehydrated either. Sunscreen, hats and water bottles are crucial items to pack for any outdoor activity.
Wear appropriate clothing
Dress for the weather. It helps to pack extra clothing with you if you'll be outdoors for longer than a couple hours – you never know when rain will hit. No one wants to be standing at a crowded music festival all day long in soaking wet clothes. If you won't be home before night time, throw a sweat shirt in your bag for when the temperature drops. Taking an extra few minutes to plan ahead before leaving your house will make a world of difference in your comfort level and enjoyment when outdoors this summer.
