Price in USD

Nine activities help you practise 'Safety Powers' with your group of children in fun, non-scary ways, supported by nine songs, three videos, 18 Kidpower Safety Signals, emotion cards and more.

Each activity provides concise information about the aims and easy-to-follow guidelines on how to introduce and practise the skills and how to use a variety of resources to support your group of children's learning (i.e. puppets, art, language and literacy exercises, songs, emotion cards, etc.)
They show how to use Kidpower's  Keys to Success to help children learn:

  • Make it fun – because people learn better when they are having fun
  • Make it simple – because simple things are easier to remember
  • Practise – a lot! – because repeated, successful practice makes skills stronger and increases confidence
  • Make it relevant – because people learn a skill faster when it seems useful

    • Early Childhood Educator and Kidpower NZ Instructor Jan Sagar, Kidpower US teacher Jennifer Blackwood, Irene, and Lisa had creative input and field-tested the early songs.
