Safe Halloween Tips
Halloween is always an exciting time of year for kids. To help make it as safe as possible, keep these tips in mind. Costumes should be bright and reflective. Choose brightly colored trick-or-treat bags to add greater visibility. Instead of masks, use makeup and costume hats. Kids can see better which will help prevent tripping. All parts of your child's costume, including wigs and accessories, should be flame- resistant. Children should always have an adult guardian with them when they go out to trick-or-treat. Each adult member of the party should carry a flashlight. To be safe, stay in a group and only travel on well-lit streets. Stay on sidewalks and do not cut across streets except at corners.
