Hey kids, what do you call those beautiful eyes of yours? Peepers? Blinkers? Orbs?
Eyes are amazing! Did you know that your eyes can see about 10 million different colors. We have to take good care of our eyes so they don’t get injured.
Here are a few ways you can take care of your eyes.
Never run if you are carrying something sharp like scissors. Ask your parents to show you how to carry scissors safely.
Love sports? Do you play ice hockey, baseball, basketball or tennis? Wear safety glasses when you play these and other sports.
Do you have a pet? A cat or a dog? Wash your hands after playing with your pet.
Did you know that your eyes can get sunburned? Don’t look directly at the sun. Do you have sunglasses for bright, sunny days? Talk to your parents about getting a pair.
