Start the discussion with your child about how to be safe by introducing this activity about important information he/she needs to know in case of an emergency.

What You Need:

  • Paper

  • Crayons

  • Toy telephone (optional)

What To Do:

  1. Find a toy telephone or draw a picture of a phone and keypad on a piece of paper.

  2. Show your child how to dial 911, and explain that it is only used in emergencies. It is important to stress that she should not freely give out their telephone number or address to anyone unless it is an emergency.

  3. On a separate blank piece of paper write “My telephone number is: (insert phone number)” and “My address is: (insert home address).”

  4. Have your preschooler say her phone number out loud and practice dialing her phone number using the pretend phone.

  5. Have her practice saying what her address is out loud.

  6. Point out the house number on your front door or mailbox, or have her find and read your home address off of a recent piece of mail.

  7. Display your telephone number and address near a phone and/or in a place where she can easily retrieve it.
