Fireworks can be fun, especially for kids. They like the dance of the colors and how loud they are. However, there are some tips you should follow to keep your kids safe around fireworks.
Don’t Let Them Play With Fireworks
Watching fireworks is fine, but your kid shouldn’t be playing with fireworks. They can be extremely dangerous and lead to severe injuries if not handled properly.
Keep a Safe Distance
Even if a firework is properly handled, there is still a chance of malfunction. Make sure that your kids are far from the launching spot and enjoy the show from a safe distance.
Be Careful With Sparklers
Parents usually can’t resist but give their kids at least a sparkler. But even if they seem harmless, they can still cause burns or eye damage. If you decide to let your kid hold a sparkler, make sure they wear gloves and proper clothes and that their eyes are protected.
Teach Them About the Dangers of Fireworks
There might be a moment when you will not be able to watch over your kids when they are around fireworks. This is why you should teach them about the dangers associated with the activity so they always know how to keep themselves safe.
