Halloween brings out the kid in everyone.  You have the chance to dress up, binge on candy and see the parade of cute costumes at your front door.  Keeping a few Halloween safety tips in mind, ensures that everyone has a wonderful evening and the tired, candy-filled princesses, superheroes, ghouls and ghosts get tuck away in bed safely after a successful night.

Costume Tips

  • Avoid costumes that are too long or may cause a tripping hazard
  • Ensure that the mask or any other part of the costume that covers the face does not interfere with vision
  • Ensure wigs, capes or other loose-hanging parts of costumes do not come in contact with open flames from pumpkins or candles
  • Add reflective tape to the costume or have your child wear a glow stick necklace so they are visible in the dark.  Both can be purchased at a dollar store

Trick or Treating

  • Trick or treat in a familiar, well lit area
  • Children should always be accompanied by an adult
  • Encourage children to trick or treat in a group
  • Make sure kids are always paying attention to traffic when crossing the street.  It is easy for them to get caught up in the excitement
  • For older children, ensure parents are made aware of their route
  • Remind children to never enter a house under any circumstance
  • Stop only at houses that have their lights on or a pumpkin lit up

Candy Inspection

  • After trick or treating, parents should inspect all candy.  Look for open wrappers, wrappers that look like they have been resealed or have holes in them.
  • Anything homemade should be thrown in the garbage.

Have a very Happy and Safe Halloween!
