Young children are surrounded by things that can burn them. It is important that children know that matches, cigarette lighters, and hot liquids can burn them. Burn injuries can be
thermal (caused by radiated heat like a sunburn), contact burns (touching flame or hot surface), and scald burns (caused by hot liquids or steam). Teach your young child how to
identify the hot things that are all around them.
ACTIVITY: Walk through your home explaining what IS HOT or what can GET HOT. (be sure to include outlets and faucets). Have child place a sticky note on them to visually identify these items.
