Recent high temperatures making it difficult for parents to find outdoor activities for kids
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Pools and splash pads are typically busy on hot days, but the playground portion of the park is emptier than usual.
“The kids can’t go on there. That’s burning hot. You can cook something on there,” said Alma Roman.
Maddie Daugherty said the high temperatures and dangers of the high surface temperatures, and the risk of heat exhaustion make it tough to come up with ideas to play with her son outdoors.
“Being a mom and everything, it’s hard to find activities for them to do when it is so hot outside. I hate having him be inside,” she said.
“I had to carry [my grandson] over here because I knew the concrete would be super hot,” said Larry Daugherty.
Some parents said they keep water shoes handy for their kids to continue having fun and keeping their feet safe.
