Look Before You Leaf!

Two kids jumping in a pile of leaves.

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.

  1. Use a safe location – make your pile away from the road or hazards
  2. Know what’s in your pile – remove tools from the area and look to see if anyone else is in the pile
  3. Use supervision – be present to keep the danger to a minimum
