Halloween Safety Tips For Kids

The countdown to Halloween is upon us. Here are some safety reminders for a smooth trick-or-treating experience.

Start by ensuring your children’s costumes are flame retardant and fit properly.

Luminaries, jack-o-lanterns and candles are festive decorations but could pose hazards at this time of year.

Some masks can obstruct vision so make sure they line up with the eyes.

Long princess dresses should be hemmed so little Cinderella doesn’t take a tumble. Also, make sure the shoe fits! Tell her that wearing mom’s high heels are not safe for walking the neighborhood.

Explain that you need to fasten reflective tape to their costumes and bags to help drivers see them better in the dark. They might think it’s cool.

If you’re not escorting your pre-teens, give them flashlights, advise them to walk in groups and eat only factory-wrapped treats. Happy Halloween!
