Shade Man - Free Sun Safe Activity Pack for Schools

Staying safe in the sun is an important part of day to day life. Teaching young children how to enjoy being in the sun safely is important as good habits gained at an early age will hopefully stay with them into adulthood.

As part of my mission to teach children sun safety, I have created various documents for you to download for free and print. These downloads can be used within your school, adding them to your lesson plans if you wish

Free Sun Safety Downloads

Download your free sun safe teaching resource activity pack, sun hat template and posters here.



Inside the teaching resource pack, you will find a range of fun and enjoyable activities suitable for children from pre-school to primary school ages.

The activities will help children to learn the importance of staying safe in the sun including what we can do to keep ourselves protected.

The idea of this pack is to get children engaging and working together as well as alone, while learning the importance of sun protection.

There’s a special Shade Man certificate at the end of the pack so you can print it and award it to pupils once they have successfully completed the pupils’ activity section of the pack.

You can also download a Shade Man sun cap so your pupils can look as cool as me and some posters for you to display around your school.
