It’s fall, which means the leaves are beginning to trickle from the trees, and every child old enough to help in the yard will be outside, ready to plunge into a fresh pile of leaves. Jumping in leaves almost seems like a rite of passage for children, but it can turn dangerous without proper attention.
- Use a safe location – make your pile away from the road or hazards
- Know what’s in your pile – remove tools from the area and look to see if anyone else is in the pile
- Use supervision – be present to keep the danger to a minimum
