Tuesday Tip: Fourth of July Safety

29 06 2010

With the upcoming Fourth of July holiday, make sure all of your family and friends are safe around fireworks.  While many states outlaw bottle rockets and any explosive beyond a sparkler, don’t be fooled, as even the sparklers can be dangerous.  Sand is a great standby to put out unforeseen fires and to hold used sparklers. 

Fill buckets with sand from your local hardware or landscaping store.  I am thinking red, blue or galvanized buckets to use as decoration for new sparklers and then let the kids put them back in the sand (hot side in the sand) when finished. 

Safety first!

And warn them, that even though it looks like E.T., and it’s beautiful, oh my goodness, beautiful, and they can hard-ly re-sist, touching it will get them in time out in the hallway for like 30 minutes.

So true! I never thought about sparklers looking like E.T, but you are so right!!
