During April, Child Abuse Prevention Month activities are prevalent in schools and community groups, public health departments, domestic violence centers and child defense organizations. With child abuse prevention activities, tools and giveaways from Positive Promotions, you can also bring attention to this important cause year-round, especially for Week Of The Young Child, April 10-16, and National Blue Sunday on April 24.
One of the most popular Child Abuse Prevention Month activities is to plant blue Mylar pinwheel gardens. In 2008, Prevent Child Abuse America introduced the pinwheel as the national symbol of child abuse prevention through their Pinwheels for Prevention® program. Symbolizing childhood happiness and whimsy, awareness pinwheels can be handed out to students, church groups and members of social service organizations, as a physical and poignant reminder of the bright futures all children deserve. Children especially enjoy creating pinwheel gardens at schools, churches and elsewhere in the community to bring attention to child abuse prevention.
In addition to blue awareness pinwheels, you'll find a wide selection here at Positive Promotions for your Child Abuse Prevention Month activities. We carry important glancers, pocket pals, bookmarks and slideguides, appropriate for both parents and students to promote positive parenting skills as well as information on warning signs and facts about child abuse. There are also educational activities books tailored for specific grade levels that teach children about personal safety and the nature of child abuse.
For fundraisers and awareness events, as well as open houses at your facility, you'll find a variety of special value packs filled with dozens of decorations and gifts to support the message of prevention. From pinwheels, magnets and pens to balloons, buttons and stickers, there are popular giveaways for all ages to help you spread awareness of child abuse prevention and prevent it in your community.
