Sunscreen---you know it's important and you hear us at 7news talk about it. We tell you "be safe during the midday hours--use that sunscreen"
This little exercise you can try with the kids when you're out with them at the playground or the ball field.
1. With your back to the sun...check out where your shadow is and more importantly, how long your shadow is.
2. If your shadow is shorter than your height (see pic above), then the sun's rays are damaging--use that sunscreen!
3. If your shadow is longer than your height (see pic above), then the sun's rays are not damaging.
Simple as that. Enjoy the sun but be safe---especially kids!
