Halloween safety tips

Trick or Treating should be one of the great adventures of Halloween for kids! It should be a fun time, without trouble and pain, so following some easy tips can keep your child safe every Halloween.
There are many ways to keep your child safe at Halloween. The excitement of children and adults at this time of year sometimes makes them forget to be careful. Simple common sense can do a lot to stop any bad things from happening.
Make Halloween a fun, safe and happy time for your kids and they'll carry on the tradition that you taught them to their own families some day!

Kids look forward to Halloween because of the dress-up and cool costumes but the mostly like it for the candy and treats! Who doesn't?
Here are a few tips to make your child's Halloween a memorable holiday they'll have good memories that last a lifetime!

Make sure that children have a safe holiday with the following tips:

  1. Children who will be trick-or-treating after dusk should have reflective tape on their costumes and carry flashlights.

  2. Young children should always go trick-or-treating with a responsible adult or older teenager.

  3. Children should never trick-or-treat alone. Have at least 2 buddies go with your child.

  4. Children shouldn't snack while they're trick-or-treating. Parents should check treats at home.

  5. Parents should serve their kids a filling meal before trick or treating so they won't be tempted to eat any candy before they bring it home for you to check.

  6. Watch for signs of tampering, such as small pinholes in wrappers and torn or loose packages.

  7. Try to ration treats for the days following Halloween.

  8. Children should accept treats only in the doorway and never go inside a house.

  9. Visit only houses where the lights are on.

  10. Make sure that if your child is carrying a prop, such as a scythe, butcher knife or a pitchfork, that the tips are smooth and flexible enough to not cause injury if fallen on.

  11. Best to plan a route the day prior to trick or treating. Establish a beginning, middle and end point in case any members of the group get lost.

  12. Know what other activities a child may be attending, such as parties, school or mall functions.

  13. Children who go trick or treating should carry a cell phone with them, if possible.

  14. Make sure you set a time that they should be home by. Make sure they know how important it is for them to be home on time.

  15. Explain to children the difference between tricks and vandalism. Throwing eggs at a house may seem like fun but they need to know the other side of the coin as well, clean up and damages can ruin Halloween

  16. To keep their home safe for visiting trick-or-treaters, parents should remove anything a child could tip over such as garden hoses, toys, bikes and lawn decorations.

  17. Consider purchasing both sweets and non-food treats for those who visit your home, such as coloring books or pens and pencils.

  18. Parents should check outdoor lights and replace burned-out bulbs.

  19. Small children should never carve pumpkins. Children can draw a face with markers, then parents can do the cutting.

  20. Lighted pumpkins should be placed on a sturdy table, away from curtains and other flammable objects and should never be left unattended.

  21. Battery powered jack o'lantern candles are preferable to a real flame.

  22. If you do use candles, place the pumpkin well away from where trick-or-treaters will be walking or standing.
