Hold Your Kids Hand
Come on, parents, this one should be obvious – you need to hold your kid's hands and go with them during Trick-or-Treating. I know it’s obvious, but why do I see so many kids wandering the streets alone? Don’t you know there are predators out there looking for children? Never let your guard down, not even on Halloween night – not even on Christmas night.
They make cool necklaces you can put on your child that light up. You can also put glow sticks all over. This will make you visible for when you are crossing the road.
Check the Candy
I know, I know, you can’t wait to eat that candy. You have such a sweet tooth, that you want to eat the candy on the ride home. However, you should resist this urge. The candy needs to be checked. There are some sick people out there and if anything looks even the slightest bit open, toss it.
The costume should be short enough so that the costume will not be tripped over. It is important to avoid baggy costumes. Yes, the costume may look cool, but you have to keep safety in mind.
If you are using face paint, it is important that you make sure it is safe. It should be hypoallergenic and non-toxic paint. Use paint that is distinctly made for the face.
It is important that you stick to those well-lit houses. Never go up to a house that is dark when you are trick-or-treating. You do not know what lurks in the dark.
Remove Any Choking Hazards
If you have young children, then you should remove all choking hazard when trick-or-treating. It may be a good idea if you were to carry the bucket when you are walking. This way, the little one doesn’t sneak any candy.
Artificial Candles and Lights
If you are passing out candy, then you may want to consider using artificial lights and candles. This way, the trick-or-treaters will not be in danger of fire. Surely, you understand me on this one.
Those are my 8 Halloween safety tips you have to follow. It is important that you follow these so that you can stay safe. Could you add some more safety tips to this?
