First aid for children – learning to help by playing

We’re on board!

What should I do in case of burns, a tick bite, or poisoning? And most importantly, how can I help others in an emergency? Answering these questions in a child-friendly manner is the goal of Mr. District Administrator Manfred Ostermann and K&L Verlag, who have published an easily understandable coloring and activity book for boys and girls in elementary school. We believe it’s a great initiative!

That’s why we support the project

The book, with many pictures to color, playfuly teaches children the skills to provide first aid in emergencies. It tells the story of siblings Mario and Olivia, who, along with their Dachshund Waldi, go through various episodes. In 32 pages, they give tips and advice on burns, heatstroke, tick bites, poisoning, or shocks. This way, children gain age-appropriate knowledge to respond correctly in emergencies and seek help. At the same time, educators, caregivers, and parents can discuss and practice the illustrations with the children.

Thanks to the support of many local businesses, the coloring and activity books can be distributed free of charge to elementary school children in Heidekreis. It’s an engagement we’re more than happy to join.
