(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Surely it's enough to get you to slather on the sunscreen this weekend.

If your child is going outside, remember the phrase slip-slop-slap, and wrap.

  • Slip on a shirt and pants
  • Slop on some sunscreen
  • Slap on a hat
  • and Wrap on some sunglasses.

Doctors say children should avoid the sun between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
