Happy "Safe" Halloween

Monday, October 29, 2012

The excitement of Halloween night can make it more challenging to keep children safe. Little ones may have a harder time listening to parents and caregivers directions and remembering basic safety rules. That is why is it so important to keep a close watch over your children when they are out trick-or-treating.
Talk with your kids a few times before the big night to go over rules and safety precautions that need to be followed while you are out trick-or-treating. Be sure to remind them again before you head out the door with them.

Trick-or-Treating Safety  
  1. Always go with your kids when they are out trick-or-treating
  2. Parents and children should use flashlights.
  3. Stick to neighborhoods that are well-lit and familiar to you.
  4. Stay on the sidewalks or walk single file where there is no sidewalk.
  5. Walk against not the traffic in the same direction as it.
  6. Take your kids out early before it gets too dark.
  7. Remind your kids not to go into any houses.
Candy and Costumes 
  1. Be sure your kids can see clearly while wearing their masks.
  2. Be sure your kids can move easily in their costumes.
  3. Avoid dark colors. Apply reflective tape to costumes.
  4. Check candy carefully before allowing your kids to eat it.
  5. Throw away any candy with open/torn wrappers or looks suspicious.
  6. Do not give out or let your kids eat candy that is not in a sealed wrapper.
