Kids' Sun Hats

Should children wear a hat?

Yes, children should wear a hat when they are outdoors, especially during the summer months. The sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage the skin and eyes, and wearing a hat can help to protect children from these harmful rays.

What is the difference between a cap and a hat for kids?

A cap is a type of hat that has a stiff brim and a rounded crown. Caps are typically made of cotton or polyester, and they can be decorated with logos, designs, or colors. A hat is a more general term that can refer to any type of headwear. However, when used to refer to children's hats, a hat typically refers to a hat with a wide brim and a soft crown.

What is a toddler hat?

A toddler hat is a type of hat that is designed for children who are between the ages of 1 and 3. Toddler hats are typically made of soft, breathable materials, and they often have adjustable straps to ensure a snug fit. Toddler hats come in a variety of styles, including baseball caps, bucket hats, and wide-brimmed hats.

Here are some additional tips for choosing a hat for your child:

  • Choose a hat that fits comfortably. The hat should not be too tight or too loose. All Sunday Afternoons kids sun hats are size adjustable
  • Choose a hat that is made of a breathable material. This will help to keep your child cool and comfortable on hot days. All Sunday Afternoons kids’ sun hats are made from breathable materials and many feature mesh ventilation as well.  
  • Choose a hat with a UPF rating of at least 30. This means that the hat will block out 97% of UV rays. All of our kids' sun hats at Sunday Afternoons feature a UPF rating of 50+, the highest rating achievable. 
  • Choose a hat that is appropriate for the activity. For example, if your child is going to be swimming, you will need to choose a hat that will not lose its shape when wet.
