Caution: Playground Slides Can Cause Burns!

When I was a child almost every slide was "metal". We all know how crazy hot those metal slides got, well did you know that same thing can happen to the PLASTIC slides on the playground?? This story shows how a little girl received 2nd degree burns from going down a PLASTIC slide.

This reminded me how I needed to be reminded to check the temperature of the slide before allowing the kids to slide on down. Of course if your kids are older like mine you can teach them to check themselves before going down.
