Sparklers commonly pop up at parties and BBQs when dusk comes around, but kids can easily burn themselves on them. Do the young 'uns a favour and make a sparkler shield using a disposable plastic cup.
Crafting weblog I Love 2 Dream, Do You? shares a tip on how to protect little hands when playing with sparklers. I remember being an unsupervised kid of six years old with access to sparklers and lighting four of five at once and trying to use them like a lightsabre. I burned my hand pretty badly from the intense heat and sparks created by the burning magnesium of the sparklers. Using this tip could have saved me a lot of pain.
