How to enjoy bonfire night with young children safely

November 5th conjures up memories of crisp November evenings with clear skies full of colour, bonfire smoke, bangs, pops and whizzes!

Even though the sights, sounds and smells might be great for us nostalgic adults, for the little ones in your life, it can sometimes feel a little daunting. If you remember, remember these three simple ways to enjoy fireworks night safely with young children, you can create great early childhood memories together as a family.

Enjoy watching the fireworks from inside the house

Close all external doors and windows and put on your child’s favourite songs in the background to muffle the sounds of loud bangs. Choose a window with a good view and snuggle up together under a blanket to watch the explosion of colour in the skies. Encourage them to copy the sounds of the fireworks or spot the colours they can see. For an extra special treat, try making these campfire cupcakes ahead of time to enjoy the taste of toasted marshmallows without the fire hazard!

Create your own ‘child-safe’ sparklers

Sparklers are extremely pretty but as they can reach temperatures of 1000 degrees centigrade, we think it’s best to leave this bonfire night tradition to older children and adults. We love this quick and easy DIY sparkler from Kids Craft Room that will allow little ones to enjoy the magic of sparklers without the heat.

Wrap up warm & keep a safe distance

If you are attending an organised fireworks display with young children, it goes without saying to make sure they’re wrapped up warm, have some ear mufflers to defend against the noise, and stay a safe distance back from the fire to prevent smoke and any stray embers causing harm. Bringing a favourite toy that keeps them calm in new situations can also help too.

You can find a reminder of the firework’s code and firework safety on the Royal Society for the prevention of accident’s website and whether you’re attending an organised display, holding your own private event with friends and family, or staying indoors, we hope you enjoy bonfire night safely this year.
