Holiday Safety Tips 1. Water your live tree regularly. 2. Keep holiday candles 12 inches away from anything that can burn. Blow them out when leaving the room. Make sure children wear flame retardant pajamas. 3. Follow age recommendations when purchasing toys and games for children. 4. Watch out for button batteries that may be in holiday cards, toys or small electronic devices. They can be a choking and poison hazard if swallowed for young children. 5. Prevent burns with holiday cooking by using the back burners on your stove so young children can't reach up and spill hot items. 6. Use non breakable ornaments with ribbon or yarn ties on the bottom branches of trees with young children and pets in the home. For a more holiday safety tips from Safe Kids Worldwide click here.
