Here are some top tips for keeping safe around the schoolyard and back yard!
1. Make sure it’s a safe playing area
It’s easy to leave gardening tools lying around, the kids toys, even sprinkler and hose attachments can present a hazard.
Before the kids get outside to play, why not make a game out of it and have them help tidy up!
The quicker they help tidy up, the sooner they’ll have “free-reign” over their play areas.
2. At school, watch-out for others
With so many kids running around the playground, educate the kids of the importance for watching where they’re running. More often than not, the kids are too involved in playing their games to realise someone “bigger” may be running towards them and may not be able to stop as quickly as someone smaller.
3. Listen to adults instructions
Out on the playground is one thing and obeying the teachers instructions is vital for kids, make sure they know that their instructions are just as important as obeying what ”Mum and Dad” might say.
4. If you do fall and injure yourself – use your HELP Hanky
