Trick or Treating Time! Halloween Safety For Your Little Monsters

“Trick or Treat!” Ghosts, goblins, and monsters are not the only things to be afraid of on Halloween night.  Parents should be aware of the potential risks that can affect children who are not supervised properly during trick or treating, so it’s important for parents to keep in mind the following safety tips to make sure the only “howls” are those of fun.

  • Have adult supervision. Accompany your kids if you don’t think they’re old enough to trick-or-treat on their own. Also, it’s easy for a child to become separated from a parent amidst all the excitement. Having your child’s name and phone number attached to their costume is a great safety tip if they are too young to remember them.
  • Safety in numbers. If they’re old enough to trick or treat without an adult, tell your kids to stay in a group.
  • Plan out a route in advance. Check the route during the day for  obstacles, such as broken sidewalks (or no sidewalks), construction timber, or other obstacles that could trip up trick or trickers. Trick or treat in familiar neighborhoods.
  • Make that costume stand out. Make your child’s costume stand out! Remember to carry light producing or reflective devices such as a flashlight equipped with  batteries, glow sticks, reflective tape, or flashing Halloween decorations that will make you and your child more noticeable in the dark. You can even add reflective tape to the costume or candy bag your child is carrying for extra visibility in the dark.
  • Choose the safest routes to walk. Pick places where there are sidewalks or paths separated away from traffic. Look for well-lit streets with slow traffic. Remind children to watch for cars turning into or pulling out of driveways.
  • Dress children in non-flammable costumes that fit properly. The costume should be short enough to prevent tripping. Avoid wearing masks, which obstruct vision. Use face paint and makeup instead.
  • Instruct children never to eat any treats until they return home and the treats have been examined under sufficient light by an adult. Check the wrappers of commercial candy for signs of tampering. Wash and cut fruit before eating. Throw away anything unwrapped. Notify the police if there are any suspicious treats.
  • Have a great time! Finally, make sure your kids have tons of fun and get lots of candy.

 

From all of us to you - stay safe, have fun, and make it a “spook-tacular” Halloween for all!
