Between decorating the house, stocking up on candy, and helping the kids with their costumes, Halloween can be a hectic time to parents. As you as your children are preparing for the night, though, don’t forget these trick or treat safety tips to guarantee a stress-free Halloween.
Pick a route
Whether you’ll be accompanying the kids or not, be sure to plan a trick or treating route in advance. If your kids are old enough to go out on their own, make sure they know to stay relatively close to home and in familiar neighborhoods.
Light up the night
Work elements that light up or reflect light into your kids’ costume. Costumes that glow are a lot of fun and extra safe.
Skip the mask
Forego the mask and opt for brightly-colored face paint instead. Masks make it hard to breathe and see—not exactly what you want for your child while they’re out at night.
Use safe props
If props are an absolute must for the costume, use items that are soft and flexible. Avoid hard, sharp objects such as swords or wands. These are accidents waiting to happen!
If the kids are going trick or treating without you this year, make certain they’ll be with a group of trusted friends or other adults.
