An at-home spa is a great way for parents to relax and unwind after a long day, enjoying the fresh outdoor air even on chilly evenings. But, what about the rest of the family? Any parent that owns a hot tub will agree that kids are constantly asking to join in the fun, but many are not sure how to make their spa friendlier (and safer) for their kids. Read through and implement these tips in your own backyard to make this spa season all about spending time with your family.
Before we get to the fun parts, it’s important to take time to ensure your hot tub is fit for every member of your family. Note that children under five and those that cannot stand on the bottom of the spa and still hold their head above the water should not use the spa. For older kids, hot tub safety is all about having the right features in your tub, finding a comfortable temperature setting and establishing some ground rules before settling in.
