Activities That Teach Safety

Through these fun and practical activities, children gain a deeper understanding and respect for safety precautions. A major plus in a safety focus is that children have to listen, communicate, and cooperate — all essential social-interaction skills! Best of all, these activities are just plain fun because they invite children to think critically and play creatively.

Introduce the safety activities with cooperative problem solving, discussion, and sharing. A good way to get children talking about safety is to fill a bag with safety props, such as a toy stop sign, a toy telephone, sunscreen, and a garbage bag. Take each object out one at a time for discussion. You might ask, “Why do we need this?” “How does it help us?” “What can we do with this object to keep us safe?” Children might say that they use the sunscreen to protect their skin in the sun, the stop sign to keep cars from bumping into each other, the telephone to call 911 for help, and the garbage bag to pick up litter. Use this activity to get children talking about safety. Then throughout the year use a prop to introduce one of the following safety activities. Children will already have experience with the prop and topic and can draw on their previous knowledge.
