Making sure your family -- especially your children child -- know about fire safety is critical in an emergency situation.
Kids learn and organize their knowledge of the world through games and imaginative play. Savvy parents and teachers will harness that knowledge and use play to teach important safety concepts. In honor of Fire Prevention Week, were sharing toys that can help you teach your child about fire prevention.
As an added bonus, these playthings will grow with your child! Their fire safety knowledge will be reinforced every time the toys come out to play.
