Take An Inventory Of Hazardous Materials In Your Home

PTABrought to FEN by National PTA®

This is a good activity to teach young children the dangers of hazardous and poisonous household items. Make sure that fertilizers, household cleaners, paints, and pesticides are labeled correctly and that they are stored safely out of the reach of children and pets. Teach your children the dangers of these items by reviewing the warning labels with them. One way to help children recognize "dangerous" items is to mark them with a large "X" using a permanent marker. Never put leftover hazardous materials in food or beverage containers. Keep the number of your local poison control center near all the phones in your home.
