When kids get hurt, it often happens where we feel they’re safest—at home. In fact, more than 4.5 million injuries to children happen each year in the home, so taking the right precautions is key.
To show parents, grandparents and caregivers how to spot potential hazards, Safe Kids Springfield and Mercy are presenting the second annual Safe Kids Baby Extravaganza. Seminars will focus on topics like choosing and using a car seat correctly, how to practice fire safety at home and even how important healthy relationships are to a child’s well-being.
The event will also be packed with lots of vendors who have helpful and fun products geared toward kids and families. There will be hourly door prizes, a diaper derby to determine the fastest crawler in the Ozarks and a children’s fashion show. Plus, for just $3, you can enter a raffle to win more than $1,000 in children’s products!
