While our families all gather to remember what this holiday means to them, it’s also a good time to remember to go over the safety steps again for handling fireworks. This is especially if children are experiencing the excitement of the colorful bursts, loud booms and writing their own name in sparklers for the first time.
However, it is important to be safe all year long. National PTA and Safe Kids Worldwide created a downloadable toolkit that might be helpful for your family, your school and your community.
The toolkit has everything from tip sheets to handouts, maps to program planning guides. There is something for everyone to use and get further involved in safety awareness.
