Safety is very important for little kids. Our children could be harmed by various kinds of danger. According to the statistics, among those 0 to 19 years of age, more than 12,000 people die from unintentional injuries . Meanwhile, more than 9.2 million of them are treated in emergency departments for nonfatal injuries .

There are few lessons which could teach kids about what can do with the surroundings and what they could not do. Few kids know when facing threats, how to fix it.

In this paper, a safety instruction app is designed for kids. The app could help parents to educate their kids on the dangers within their environment, especially at home. And the app could guide them to find those dangerous items at home. Kids could play for fun and learn in the meantime. When all goals accomplished, kids could have a clear sense of what to do, and what to be cautious while at home. What’s more, AR technology is also involved in this design. Kids could use the rear camera of iPad Pro to look around their surroundings. Kids could recognize what should be paid attention to, and keep away from those items within the AR scene.
