Halloween is right around the corner. It is always exciting to see the children dressed up in their favourite costumes. We feel that Halloween should be fun and safe. Here are some safety tips from the red cross to help protect the little ghosts and goblins that you love.
Tips for Safe Trick-or-Treating
- Make sure your child can be seen in the dark. Costumes should be light coloured and flame resistant with reflective strips. (And remember to put reflective tape on bikes, skateboards and brooms, too!)
- Equip yourself and/or your children with a flashlight, to see better and to be better seen.
- Costumes should be short enough to avoid tripping.
- Use face paint rather than masks or other objects that may cover the eyes.
- Explain to children that visits should be made along one side of the street first, then the other and that it’s best to cross the street at intersections or crosswalks.
- Remind children to look both ways before crossing the street to check for cars, trucks and low-flying brooms.
- Remind children not to eat their treats until they are examined by an adult at home. Candy should not be eaten if the package has already been opened.
- Children should stay in well-lit areas and should only visit homes that have their outside porch lights on. Trick-or-treaters should not go inside homes.
Costumes should be short enough so that trick or treaters don’t trip.
