TIME TO PLAY AND PRACTICE!
Are air guns, pellet guns, BB guns, and paint ball guns toys? NO! Teach your child that all guns are real guns and can hurt or kill someone. An exception would be a plastic water pistol. Use the Air Gun BB Gun Brochure to show the picture of the real and replica guns and how they look alike. Replica means it looks just like a regular gun and shoots something out that could still hurt someone.
Use something like a coffee mug to represent a gun or draw a picture of gun. Hide it in a room and then have your child try to locate the ‘gun’ and follow the Stop, Don’t Touch, Leave the Area and Tell an Adult safety rules.
