SAFETY MEASURES - PLEASE READ
CAREFULLY

ARTS & CRAFTS SAFETY RULES TO
BE OBSERVED WHEN PRACTISING
ARTS & CRAFTS WITH YOUNG
CHILDREN
We urge everyone to employ the same common sense with these
activities that they would with any other activity involving a
small child.

Specifically:
  1. When painting, use tempera/water paints - Always use white
    glue.
  2. Pasta and other items that have been coloured with rubbing
    alcohol, glue or food colouring are not edible.
  3. Monitor any activities that involve glue & glitter carefully, so
    glitter doesn't get into eyes.
  4. An iron is hot - an ADULT must perform any activity steps
    that involve ironing.
  5. Remember that small objects - even edible ones - can be a
    choking hazard for small children.
  6. Edible items that have been glued or treated are no longer
    edible.
  7. Items such as shaving cream, glue, paste and paint are not
    edible.
  8. Use of scissors & cutting activities require adult supervision!
  9. Children need to be supervised when working with heat,
    cooking or hot objects.
  10. Adult supervision is required when children are working with
    small, sharp or warm objects.
  11. If in doubt DON'T!
