In brief: Foreign body

It really depends how deep the splinter is.
Most superficial ones can be kept alone as they get extruded when the skin peels off. If a good part of the splinter shows, you may try pulling it out with a tweezer. If unsuccessful, especially if if deep, you should bring your child to a doctor, urgent care or the ed.
