Spike Education Program

What is the Spike Education Program?

The Spike Education Program is a child safety program recommended for preschool, kindergarten or first-grade classes. The NNEPC encourages schools to do the program in March for National Poison Prevention Week.

The program teaches children and adults safety tips for preventing poisonings using Spike’s Poison Prevention Adventure, a video starring Spike, the poison prevention porcupine puppet.

The video is available to watch online, and teachers or school nurses can supplement it with the downloadable materials below. You can also use our educational materials form to request magnets and Spike temporary tattoos to hand out to students.
