(1 of 4) Eddie Eagle is the most, "hands off" of childrens firearms safety programs. It runs for about 45 minutes to an hour. It will even work for toddlers if they are able to sing a simple song! Parents also participate in this particular home school gun class in a separate room where we review information such as locking guns up, how to talk to other parents, etc. Parents are an active part of our firearms safety program, they receive goodies and gun locks from Operation Child Safe; there are no additional fees required for parents to participate.
