In summer, mozzies can stop our kids from playing outside, especially little kids at daycare in mozzie hotspots. We need a kid friendly and environmentally friendly solution. Solar powered outdoor fans create a wind which mozzies don't like, and they keep the kids cool. This is ideal for smaller enclosed play areas such as those at daycare centres. The fans could be installed under big mushrooms of bright colours. As well as looking fun, the mushrooms protect the fans from the elements. The solar panels can be mounted on top of each mushroom, or the fans can be hard wired underground to the solar source. This solution addresses a couple of issues that kids face while playing outside in summer - the mozzies and the heat. It reduces the need for daily use of insect repellent in little kids (which has questionable safety) and improves the aesthetics of the play space.
