Quills Up – Stay Away!

Young children are at greatest risk for unintentional poisonings – and that’s why we’ve created the Quills Up – Stay Away! A Poison Awareness Program featuring Spike, the porcupine puppet. The program, designed for preschool children, makes it easy and fun to teach this important topic.

Quills Up! Includes a video and classroom activities as well as educational materials for parents/caregivers – because getting parents and other adults involved is critical to poison prevention.

Click on the links below to access the Quills Up! program materials online*. If you have questions about poison prevention or need local poison prevention materials, such as the phone stickers mentioned in this program, contact your poison center’s education coordinator by calling 1-800-222-1222.

Teacher’s Guide: Includes poison prevention information, classroom activities, and song lyrics.

Spike’s Poison Prevention Adventure Video: An engaging 11-minute puppet show.

Spike Paper Puppet (color): Reproducible images to be cut and glued to a stick/tongue depressor for use by the teacher.
