**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS KETCHUP, NO ONE WAS HURT OR INJURED IN THE PROCESS OF THIS ACTIVITY** We decided to have a little role play fun & teach the kids how to call for help if ever they needed to. It was gory and fun and valuable lessons were learnt.’

Here’s what we did…

We made a chart of instructions to put by the phone..

Dopey bugger, someone left toys on the stairs and I fell down breaking my leg, I couldn’t move so Eden had to go for help.

I disconnected the phone so they could practice their 999 calling skills.

This was a fun awareness raising activity to try and teach the kids to be calm and collected in an emergency situation. A week after we did this activity I sliced the end of my finger off on a piece of glass and fainted whilst alone with baby Noah and Mila 4, she held the phone receiver for me whilst I called for help and shortly afterwards when I fainted she went next door to raise the alarm and get help, so although we’d had fun and a giggle recreating these scenarios valuable lesson were learnt too…
