Halloween safety tips!

Halloween is just around the corner and the kiddos are getting ready for trick-or-treating. Of course, we always want kids to be safe, so here are some tips on staying safe this Halloween.

Fire proof. It's good to check to make sure your child's costume is flame retardant.

Keep clear. If your child has on a costume, make sure eyes, nose and mouth are not covered. It's also good to have a costume without a mask to ensure breathing isn't restrained.

Stay bright. If you will be trick-or-treating in the evening, be sure to get some glow-in-the-dark supplies or a light-colored costume so your child is easy to see. Bringing a flashlight is a great idea!

Identify yourself. Put a tag with your child's name and your phone number inside the costume should you get separated.

Safety in numbers. It is definitely encouraged that parents join their children for the trick-or-treating. If an older child or teenager is going alone, be sure a group is going.

Use common sense. Encourage kids to only go to houses that have the porch lights on, cross at crosswalks, watch for vehicles and never walk in front of a vehicle.
 
Map your night. Create a game-plan before you go, so you know where you are headed and how to get home.

Candy patrol. When your child returns from trick-or-treating, check all of the treats to make sure they're sealed and that there are no signs of tampering. Any candy that is not sealed should be thrown away.

Safety for others. If you will be passing out candy at your house, be sure to remove anything that might obstruct your walkway and turn lights on outside.

 

And of course, most importantly, have a great time! And don't eat all the candy in one sitting!
