A mahoover Halloween Production
You took a half day off from work today to go to the pumpkin patch with your three sons, Jake (5), Paul (10), and Adam (11). You supervised while they worked together to carve the three pumpkins.
After they finished carving the pumpkins, they wanted to light them, so you went to get the votive candles you use in the pumpkins. When you get to the cupboard, you discover you are out of votive candles. You always use votive candles in glass holders for safety reasons. The boys are disappointed, but you promise to pick up some candles on your way home from work tomorrow.
You leave the boys to admire the pumpkins and play outside while you deal with some other house chores. Later, when you go to get the boys for dinner, you discover them clustered around the lit pumpkins. When you ask the boys what is going on, Adam says that they found some candles in a drawer in the dinning room and used them. The boys used the pumpkin carving tools to cut down to size some tapered candles that are used as part of centerpieces on the dinning room table.
The boys have broken three standing rules, two of them safety related. The first is going into the dinning room drawers and using the candles without asking. The second is using the sharp tools without adult supervision. And the third is playing with fire without adult supervision.
