Do kids need wetsuits in sea in February

Going to Sharm on 2 Feb. My 5 and 7 year old boys have wet suits - would it be advisable to take them with us for boys to use when snorkelling in sea at this time of year? If the sea is fairly cold, I could be persuaded to buy one too!!

I don't think you will need them, the water temp will be arround 22-24 degrees C. It is constant year arround despite the temp of the air.

If they plan on spending a lot of time in the sea (i.e. if they're keen snorkellers) it may be worth taking them. There's so much to see that you can spend ages in the water and at least they'll feel comfortable. It can be a bit chilly in the sea in Feb particularly if the wind is up.
