Spring is officially here, and a trip to the playground is a great activity that both parents and kids enjoy. During this Playground Safety Week, April 24-30, Safe Kids Greater Cleveland wants to remind parents to actively supervise their kids when playing on a playground. To help organizations do so, we have provided social media posts, a press release template, infographics, handouts, blog posts and more materials. Playground Safety materials can be found here.
