CHEMICAL SMART

DURATION:  30 mins

OUTCOME:  Increased awareness about dangerous household products that can look and smell attractive  – Like something we could consume.

RATIONALE:  Every day children are harmed through chemicals either through ingestion, inhalation or simple contact. Two main factors make children susceptible:
(1) Attractive packaging.
(2) Perfumes used in chemical products – They can smell good but it only takes a second for a disaster to occur. Children can swallow, drink, inhale, or spill chemicals on themselves in a flash..

KEY MESSAGES: 

• Food and chemicals containers can sometimes look very similar.

• Some chemical containers don’t have warning labels.

• Harmful chemicals can be found anywhere – Sometimes where you least expect them to be.

• Chemical can be dangerous – Some are poisonous, or give off toxic fumes and others can burn our skin and eyes.

• If we are not sure,  we should just leave bottles and containers we are not familiar with alone or ask an adult first.
