Always have an adult check how thick the ice is BEFORE you go onto it! Measure clear, hard ice in several places to be sure it is thick enough! Slide 11 Slushy or dark ice is unsafe! Ice should be at least 10 cm (4 inches) thick before you walk or play on it! Slide 12 Do not go onto slushy or recently refrozen ice! Sudden temperature changes will cause even clear hard ice to start thawing. Stay away from ice that is recently refrozen, or is near moving water such as rivers and currents.
