Leyna’s current obsession is fire safety. She’s literally dancing around my office right now singing, “Fire safety!” She’s also decorated my office wall with the family escape plan she made at school today.

This is a post sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association and Sparky.org.

In fact, when the National Fire Protection Association reached out to me about working with them, I immediately recognized Sparky the Fire Dog because I read his book to the kids the night before. Our local fire department was handing them out at a place we went for dinner one night a few weeks ago.

Fire Prevention Week is next week, October 9-15th, but obviously Leyna’s teacher is getting a head start, and I’m happy to encourage her enthusiasm at home with the free Sparky’s Firehouse app.

I actually fondly remember learning about “Stop, Drop & Roll” and how to create a family fire escape plan back when I was her age. It was pretty exciting! I think kids like when you give them some control over what is usually very scary.

What we liked most about playing around on Sparky.org and Sparky’s Firehouse app is that it’s not all solely focused on fires and prevention. There are a lot of fun activities that get your kids engaged without alarming them.
