Tips for surviving Halloween
Whether you’re prepping kids for a night out or heading out for your own festivities, use these tips to keep your Halloween free from scary mishaps.
If your kids are trick-or-treating:
- Add reflective tape to costumes or candy bags for better visibility
- Make sure you and your kid(s) are equipped with flashlights
- Use costume makeup instead of masks to avoid obstructed eyesight
- Pin long costumes and wear comfortable shoes to prevent tripping
- Forego pointed accessories – like swords and sticks
- Accompany your kids out or arrange for them to trick-or-treat with a group supervised by an adult
- Teach your kids how to safely cross the street and check for oncoming traffic
- Only visit a home if the porch light is on
- Plan a route and stay together
- Examine treats and toss out anything unwrapped
- Slow down and drive carefully, and be sure to keep an eye out for children crossing the street
- Properly restrain your pets
- If you’re handing out treats, clear your yard of any items visitors may trip on
- Keep your home and walkways well-lit (unless you’re closing up for the night, then simply turn your porch light off)
- Replace jack-o’-lantern candles with flameless candles or glow sticks
Have a safe — and spooky — Halloween!
