Safety hunt around the home to reinforce safe behaviors
What You Need:
- Crayons or markers
What To Do:
- Create "safety stickers" on the paper that indicate a "no touching" symbol. Use the crayons or markers and draw a sad face or "no" symbol.
- Tell your toddler that you are going on a safety hunt to find things that are safe and things that are not safe.
- Take your child around the house to find things that are not safe (e.g., stove, oven, iron). Place the stickers on the dangerous item.
- Say, “This means the stove is hot. OUCH!” Shake your hand as if it was hot to the touch.
- Repeat this on various items around the home.
