Resource: UL Safety Smart

Underwriters Laboratories, the people who test the safety of various products, have created a pretty incredible website geared for kids – www.ulsafetysmart.com.

UL teamed with Disney to offer several Safety Smart video clips with characters like Timon and Pumba from The Lion King and Bill Nye the Science Guy. In addition to the video clips, the site features interactive games, smart phone apps, and printable activity pages. Kids can join the Safety Smart Club to become a Safety Wizard and get access to additional safety information.

The best part is, the games are actually fun. And kind of addicting.

I may, or may not have spent twenty minutes trying to beat my own score on a word find!

The more you play, the more points you earn. As you gain points more games are unlocked for you to play.

Even better, the site breaks out the games and activities by age. So you can load the page for your kids age group and let them play to their hearts content knowing its good solid content.

Must be 18 to participate.
