My girls are 4 years old and they kind of know how to use the phone. Recently I've been checking books out at the library that are about child safety to read to them. I think it is great they have so many good books for them. However, I hadn't taught them something simple like dialing 911. Our home phone is a little confusing because you have to press the [Talk] button after you dial the number. So I thought I would come up with something graphical for the kids to follow.
I then laminated the picture and taped it to the wall next to the phone.
Luckily we haven't had to use it but I think it is a good for emergencies for young kinds instead of just posting the numbers 911.
