Nothing brings excitement to a boil like Trick-Or-Treating on Halloween! The costumes, friends, allure of the late evening, and the mountains of candy are enough to drive kids wild! With the magical evening fast approaching we wanted to provide some easy and practical tips you can follow to ensure your youngsters enjoy All Hallows’ Eve to the fullest without any incident or injury.
- Always have a responsible adult walk with youngsters.
- If they’re old enough, teach them the dangers of crossing the street, especially between parked cars.
- Only cross at crosswalks
- Wear glow sticks or other reflective clothing to increase visibility
- If old enough to go out on their own, teach them about safety in numbers, and have them check frequently to make sure everyone is accounted for.
- Never go into anyone’s house.
- Teach kids to be aware of their surroundings.
- Don’t go to houses where the lights are off.
- Have a set time when older kids are to be home and checked in by.
- If going in a group ensure at least one person has a cell phone.
- Check your kids’ candy! It’s sad, but there are malicious people who put glass, needles and other junk into the candy.
