Keeping Safe Games
Activity Image


Children will use hand/eye coordination to play a fun game to learn and reinforce safety ideas.


  • Ball


Safety Ball Toss

Have children sit in a circle. Give one child a small soft ball. Explain that the child with the ball will toss it to another child in the circle. That child needs to catch the ball and tell the group one important safety rule. Once the child with the ball has recited a rule, he or she gets to throw the ball to another child who recites a second important safety rule. After several safety rules have been addressed, the game can be continued with a new set of safety rules (i.e. for riding a bicycle, for crossing the street etc.).


Spray Out that Fire!

Have players form a line. Have each player hold the waist of the player in front of them. The first player in the line is the “water.” All the rest of the players are the “hose.” One player who is not in the line is the “fire.” He/she tries to catch the end of the hose (the last player in the line). The water tries to prevent him/her from doing it. The water prevents the fire’s way by the stretching out his/her arms. The hose tries to help the water by moving the end of the line away from the fire. When the water catches the fire, a new fire and water is chosen. If the fire catches the hose, he/she becomes the water and chooses a new fire.


Firefighter's Workout

Firefighters need to stay healthy and strong to be able to carry the heavy fire equipments. Let children join you in a firefighter's workout. Do exercises like jumping jacks, leg lifts, running in place, and carrying buckets full of water from one place to another.


Traffic Light Game

Draw 3 large circles on a green, a red, and a yellow construction paper. Glue each circle ( lights) on their own jumbo craft stick.

Play music and hold up the "Green" light. Have the children march along to the music. Change the “light” to
"Yellow" and explain that on yellow we have to slow down . When you switch to the "Red" light the children have to stop "Freeze" in place.
