Brecker’s Safety Tip: Campfire Safety

brecker bunnyasks for helpOne of the top ways young children are burned is by falling into campfires or fire pits.  Before you every start an outdoor fire, have your little Bunny Buddy help you form a three foot perimeter around the fire area with rocks or other non-flammable objects.  This is the boundary that no child should pass into.  Help Bunny Buddies understand how far to stay away from the fire by stretching their arms as far as they can go.  Tell them that’s how far away from the fire ring they need to stay.  Having a safety boundary does not ensure safety, however, so make sure there is always an adult “fire watcher.”
