Safety Rocks


June is National Safety Month so you might want to plan some crafts and activities to help reinforce this idea and celebrate “Safety” . These are some good ideas for preschool or young children, but you can modify to fit the ages of your children.

Materials needed:

• Red poster board
• Scissors
• Markers
• Small flat rocks – (one for each child)
• Red permanent marker
• Zipper closure plastic bags (snack size)

What to do to prepare and activities to reinforce the concepts:

1. Cut out a large red stop sign shape
2. Invite the children to help think of rules to remember when to go out to play to stay safe.
3. Write the rules on the stop sign.
4. Some rules could include:
- Cross the street with a grown-up
- Do not talk to strangersBobby and Mandee's Too Safe for Strangers: Children's Safety Book
- Stay away from fire and matches
- Wear a helmet when riding a bike
5. Let the kids draw a red heart on each rock. Tell them that the heart represents the people who love them and want them to stay safe.
6. Red means to stop and think before they do something, to make sure it is safe.
7. Put each rock in a zip lock bag for them to take home.
8. Put the following note inside each bag:
Put the rock inside your pocket
When you go to play
The heart says to remember the rules
And stay safe every day
