  • Be a safety detective. Check the people and places that you are learning about and list any hazards.
  • Make a mural or safety poster showing dangerous situations and what you can do about them.
  • With your club, play the Safety Game. Give each other safety situations to answer with “Yes,” “No,” or “I’ll ask my mom.”


  • Encourage parents to help the Adventurers make a fire-safety plan. People safety refers to refusing rides with strangers, etc.
  • Draw a floor plan for your school, club, and/or church, and show where and how to go out of the area in case of emergency. Practice these drills.
  • Local police or fire departments or your local library will have information for your particular area. Discuss the kind of disasters that may appear so you can inform and prepare the children without frightening them.
  • Make up a “Safety Detective” button or ribbon that the Adventurers may wear the week they are recording potential problems at home or school. They should look for hazards such as a broken latch on a cabinet that has cleaning fluids or medicine in it, frayed wires or broken electrical plugs, a rake lying face up, boards on the sidewalk, a broken water faucet, unlabeled containers holding paint thinner or gasoline, broken glass, etc.
  • Ask permission to display the posters in a public place.
  • Give the children safety situations in which they must answer, “Yes,” “No,” or “I’ll ask Mom and Dad.” Start the game with a situation you have experienced, such as broken glass on the floor. Ask, “Would you pick up the glass?” “Would you tell your mother?” Encourage the children to share realistic situations and to think carefully before acting.
