A Saturday night Halloween is on the horizon. The spooky night will be filled with ghouls and goblins ready for an evening of trick-or-treating. Unfortunately, many different dangers can lurk in the dark of the night or even in a trick-or-treat bag. Wally’s Party Factory has compiled a few safety tips for parents and children to ensure a safe night of Halloween fun.
Look through the candy really well before eating. Throw away all candies with loose wrappers, or that are missing wrappers. Also, chunk any treat that may have tears or holes in the wrapper, or any candy that looks weird or might be a strange color. Do not eat homemade goodies unless you know the person that gave them to you.
Parents: Take out any item that may be a choking hazard for your little one, such as gum, peanuts, hard candies, and small toys.
Make sure that your shoes are on tight. Take a practice run around your house to see if any part of your costume might cause trouble. Check that you do not trip on your costume, and that you will be able to climb steps. Is your mask comfortable? Can you see well through the eyeholes? If the answer is yes, then you are good to go.
Wear a reflective necklace, glow sticks, or shiny tape on your costume and bag, so that others can see you when it’s dark.
Parents: Dress up with your kiddo. Wear a matching costume or funny hat. Have fun.
Always use the buddy system, or have adults walk with you while trick-or-treating.
Walk, don’t run. Stay on well-lit streets, walk on the sidewalk, and do not take shortcuts. Cross at crosswalks, never cross the street between parked cars. Look both ways before crossing. Always walk towards traffic and remember that drivers will not always be able to see you. Carry a cellphone in case of emergency.
Never trick-or-treat at houses that do not have on lights. Do not go anywhere that you do not know. Never go inside anyone’s house, even if invited. Never get into a car with a stranger.
Parents: Set-up a meeting plan in case you are separated from your child.
