Description:Caption:
This young African-American boy was having a fun, imaginative time playing with his toys in a backyard dirt pile. Children love playing outside, and this child was thoroughly enjoying his this time having fun in the fresh outdoor air, and the beautiful weather.

It is important to know that sunscreen should be applied on any exposed skin, and children should wear clothing appropriate for this kind of outdoor play including sneakers, shirts, and long pants, all of which protect the children from splinters, and abrasions. It’s also a good idea to have children play in groups rather than alone, not only to improve safety, but for the purpose of cultivating friendships as well.
Additional Information:
Note that proper handwashing is a must after playing in any outdoor environment, thereby, removing contaminants from the skin surface, including viruses such as H1N1.
