4. CRAFT SAFETY AND ADULT SUPERVISION
Website Targeted to Adults:
Our Web Site and all the crafts and instructions herein are targeted to adults. While we’ve listed some safety tips in these Terms and on specific craft blog posts, adults should use their best judgment to make sure children are supervised and safe. Adults should always handle chemicals and hot glue and should be the one to operate tools that may be dangerous such as ovens or irons. Please pay close attention to any craft-specific safety tips, for example those included on slime recipes and salt dough recipes. Also check each craft to see whether there is a warning that the project may not be suitable for children under a particular age.
Adult Supervision is Required:
Adult supervision is required for any arts and crafts project. Observe children closely and intervene as necessary to prevent potential safety problems and ensure appropriate use of all materials. For example, some craft items, particularly small beads and buttons, are potential choking hazards for young children, so you should avoid using small parts with young children. Craft items may have sharp points or edges. Certain materials may be flammable and should not be used near an open flame. We do not recommend that you make product substitutions as these may result in dangerous or unanticipated outcomes. Read all manufacturers’ safety warnings before using arts and craft supplies. Always read and follow the labels of the products used. If a product is accidentally ingested, seek medical attention immediately. Adult assistance should always be provided when using tools that may be difficult or dangerous to children (i.e., scissors, etc.). You should ensure that none of the crafts are consumed by your child or put in or near your child’s mouth or other sensitive tissue. For example, if you are creating a costume or mask, make sure the crafts do not obstruct the child’s vision or hearing, or impede movement in any way. Adults only should make slime and slime should not be placed in the mouth. Always wash hands before and after playing with slime. Slime is a science experiment and should be made and played with in moderation. Do not allow children to make their own slime and do not play with slime for an extended period of time. If you notice any irritation discontinue use immediately. If you have sensitive skin, use gloves to make and play with the slime.
You are responsible for all supplies. You will have to purchase all your own arts and crafts supplies. We may suggest particular brands that we prefer; however, you should always review the instructions and ingredients label to ensure the product is safe for your child. If your child has specific allergies, you should carefully read the ingredients of all products you use to create the crafts found on our Web Site. Be aware of safety precautions and protocols, particularly those on the label of a particular product. If your child accidentally ingests some of a dangerous or hazardous product, you should seek medical attention immediately.
