Parents and Educators

Elmer the Safety Elephant is one of the best known and best loved symbols of child safety. To hundreds of thousands of children across Canada, Elmer is a constant reminder to be careful in traffic. He also reminds them about playground, bicycle, fire, railway and home and community safety.

Elmer’s Safety Village is a virtual tour of Elmer’s neighborhood. Key elements found in the village activate different safety topics and introduce children to safety rules and tips. To reinforce the important safety messages, please feel free to download the colouring pages and activity pages. There are also educational interactive games. Each safety topic offers downloadable information supplements for parents and educators.

We are always on the look out for new ideas and classroom activities to expand on the resources found at Elmer’s Safety Village. Let us know of any successful safety activity ideas that you have used and would like to give to Elmer’s Safety Village by sending an email to
