Thanksgiving is a day of joy. The kitchen is bustling, and kids love to be involved in holiday preparations. However, accidents can happen before you know it.
Some tips to avoid disasters are: keep children away from the stove, stay in the kitchen when you’re cooking on the stovetop, stay home when cooking a turkey, don’t leave kids alone in a room with a burning candle, and make sure your smoke alarms are working.
See the National Fire Protection Association’s “Thanksgiving Safety” for details on these tips and for other suggestions.
In addition, see the NFPA’s “Kids in the Kitchen” guide for ideas on what different age groups can do around the kitchen as you prepare your holiday meal.
