    Finding things for the kids to do can be a challenge, but this makes learning about safety fun and easy. Who said learning had to be boring!

    That was so helpful for this mama!!

    I agree. Safety is very important to teach our children. Living in Florida, our 2 boys took swimming lessons for about 4-5 summers straight when they were younger. They are now very good swimmers! Great tips!

      My siblings and I took swimming lessons too when we were kids. So important! I have been trying to find swimming lessons for my daughter, but haven’t been able to find any for kids under 4, so I guess we’ll have to wait. :/

    I love these! Awesome creative ideas to make learning safety fun. Can’t wait until my daughter is a little older to start teaching her more of these things.

    • Reply TONYA June 25, 2019 at 1:47 pm

      My girls are pretty young still too, so it’s hard, but it’s good to start teaching safety in age-appropriate ways as soon as possible!

  • Reply Marisa June 25, 2019 at 12:45 am

    GReat list, great idea to teach our kids about safety and why. I never thought about teaching first aid. Another good idea.

  • Reply Karie June 25, 2019 at 12:59 am

    So important to teach kids these safety topics. Great list of topics. I find I’m still teaching my kids even though they are teens. If it wasn’t for moms I think boys would never make it to adults. Lol

      Lol! I don’t have boys, but I believe you!

    Love the way so many of these are outdoor activities. Once the safety needs are meet, the fun begins. Nice combination.

    My husband always taught our kids about snakes and insects so they knew what was cool and what to avoid! Great tips thank you!

    • Reply TONYA June 26, 2019 at 10:20 am

      Great idea! I’ve been trying to teach my daughter not to be afraid of harmless bugs, like dragonflies, but for some reason she’s terrified of them! At least, she was when they first came out this spring…they were everywhere!

    Don’t forget music! Kids learn things well with songs and poems. ie… my twins came home from preschool with this song (to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star) and we hear this song at almost EVERY intersection (going on 2 months now).
    Twinkle, Twinkle traffic light
    On the corner shining bright.
    Red means stop, Green means go.
    Yellow means go, but take it slow.
    Twinkle, twinkle traffic light,
    on the corner shining bright.

    Now that song is stuck in your head. You’re welcome. LOL

      Hahaha! Great song….I’ll need to add music to the post. We are always singing in our house…and now my little one is always making up songs to familiar tunes.

    Important safety lessons for kids to learn!

  • Reply Angela Greven | Mean Green Chef June 26, 2019 at 2:19 pm

    Great tips to keep kids safe, water safety is right where it belongs at the top of the list! Teaching kids water safety is so important and people with pools need fences and alarms on doors and the pool itself. We lose a lot of little ones down here in FL due to many of these issues. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂

      Thanks Angela! That’s so tragic, I can’t imagine having something like that happen to one of my girls. 🙁
