I think the main difference is that since a car is like a greenhouse, summer is already hot and the car can get very hot very fast, but in the winter, it's cold out, so the greenhouse effect makes it...

That's one of the things I always did in my babysitting years. Kids do damage, they help with repairs, age appropriately of course, but even little ones can help.
