It’s time to trick-or-treat again, and that means a few safety reminders to keep your little super heroes, ninjas, and princesses out of harm’s way. Every year, local law enforcement agencies provide extensive lists of safety tips, as Halloween night is always a big night for injuries, largely traffic accidents involving kids. We’ve collected the most important of those rules to help you stay safe while little ones collect tons of candy and show off those amazing costumes.
- Trick-or-treat in a group and stay with your group.
- Glow in the dark! Reflective materials, glow sticks, and flashlights are all good ways to be more easily seen by drivers navigating all those groups of kids in the dark.
- Try costumes on well before Halloween festivities, and avoid masks that impair vision. Kids need to be able to see clearly, especially when crossing the street.
- Remind children that every piece of candy must be checked before eaten.
- Teach children NEVER to enter any home without you or without your permission.
Halloween is a great time to get outside, get to know neighbors, and enjoy how much fun your kids are having. We hope these five simple safety tips help make trick-or-treating even better this year. Have a spooky good time on Halloween night!
