Safety First


Use this poem to help children learn important safety facts.

Safety is important.
We all know that is true.
Please stay safe in summer
And take good care of YOU.

Helmets when you ride and skate.
Pads for safety too.
Always swim with a pal.
Keep grown-ups in your view.

Put on lots of sunscreen
To fight off the sun's rays.
Do this all day long
When swimming or at play.

When the grill is hot
Stay back and don't get burned.
We must all remember
The lessons that we've learned.
