Kids Safety for the Holiday Weekend
Are You Celebrating This Weekend?
Whether or not your family is celebrating Easter, you want to always keep in mind for the children’s safety. Most of the time kids love running around. Let’s face it, they won’t pay attention if their actions are safe or not. They’re thinking of just having fun. Most kids love to be adventurous, which means they are willing to run, jump and climb whenever they know they are allowed too.
Here are some tips to prepare a safe ground:
Pick a safe area and designate the play-field. If you’re outside, there may be a sense of chaos. Kids love running around—especially if they are looking for treasure. Make sure you place toys and rewards in safe places and reachable for even the shortest adventurers to reach. You want the kids to be adventurous, but preventing an injury is ideal.
Indoor play should still have boundaries. When the kids line up to search for an egg hunt or a treasure hunt in the house, it’s recommended to pick a few rooms where they can roam around in. Pick rooms with less electrical currents and glass. This gives you more places to hide the treasure. Also, don’t place them in high places, so little ones can also grab them.
Set a “no running” policy. This will prevent kids from bumping into each other and unintentionally hurt one another. This is recommended especially inside where an injury is more likely to happen if running is involved. Also, group the kids into age groups to avoid a collision between the taller and smaller kids.
It’s also best if you have a first aid kit within reach; just in case someone gets a small cut or bruise.
