Meet Spike, the friendly porcupine. IPC’s Spike Program helps parents and educators teach children the basics of poison prevention.
Our helpful toolkit includes activities and songs tailored to young children—all featuring the adorable mascot, Spike.
The IPC Spike Program harnesses the power of imagination to promote poison prevention at an early age. Our materials include songs, puppets, activities, discussion topics, and other health and safety resources.
Spike’s songs might get stuck in your head—but your kids will love him! We encourage parents, teachers and caregivers to use Spike Program materials to engage young children in poison prevention.
Our course covers poison prevention in seven short lessons and quizzes. It offers continuing education credit and free IPC giveaways.
IPC resources empower parents, teachers and public officials to prevent poisonings.
