    How to Promote Good Hydration during Children's Sporting Events

    Kids are a constant source of energy, running and playing hard in spite of weather, circumstance, and temperature. In heat levels that would slow down most adults, children will happily gear up and play sports in the blazing sunlight. However, this boundless energy comes at a cost no child considers on their own. Playing, especially in the heat, can take up an impressive amount of water and it is all too easy for enthusiastic children to forget about staying hydrated to compensate for the amount of time they spend running around in the hot sunshine. This is especially true for children who play sports, dedicating hours of their afternoons and weekends to practicing and competing on open fields. One of the best things team parents can do together is to promote hydration during sporting gatherings and events.

    Commercial & Personal Uses for Misting Fans: Keep Summer Sports Cool By Installing Misting Fans

    Summer is the time for sports. Whether it's junior soccer for the kids, the company softball league dad decided to join this year, or peewee football for the little ones, everyone wants to get out and play a game or two once the temperature warms up. Even if you remember to stay hydrated and put on the proper amount of sunscreen, though, there is a risk that you won't be able to beat the heat after it reaches a certain temperature. However, if you're looking for a way to keep cool while still getting into the spirit of the season, then it might be time to think about setting up misting fans on your home field.

    Keeping Your Fast Food Play-Place Cool and Inviting All Year Round
    Common american indoors playgroundOne of the major draws of a well built and child-friendly fast food restaurant is the play place. Kids often beg their parents to go just for the opportunity to burn off their burgers, sodas, and chocolate shakes by running around, climbing through, and sliding down the features of your unique and colorful equipment. Able to get their food and settle in quickly, parents are also big fans of the fast food play-place as it gives them the opportunity to kick back with a book, music, or work on their mobile devices while their kids expend some energy. However, if your play-place is outdoors in a region that can really heat up, even a shady awning might not be enough
