  • Add reflective tape to dark costumes.
  • Pay close attention when walking past driveways and through intersections.
  • Masks can limit eyesight, so consider using non-toxic makeup or a hat to achieve the same look as wearing a mask.
  • Carry flashlights with fresh batteries (glow sticks are fun, too).
  • Teach your child the best contact phone number for a parent or friend and that they know their home address, in case they get lost.
  • Halloween is a great time to refresh your children on the concept of strangers. Be sure your child knows not to talk to anyone they don’t know. (And definitely doesn’t enter anyone’s home.)
  • Remind your child to not eat any candy before an adult checks it.
  • Masks can limit eyesight, so consider using non-toxic makeup or a hat to achieve the same look as wearing a mask.
  • Always choose flame resistant costumes and accessories. This can be confirmed by looking at the tag on the costume.
  • Add reflective tape to dark costumes.
  • Pay close attention when walking past driveways and through intersections.
  • Be sure that any accessories your child carries (swords, canes, sticks, wands, etc.) are not too long or too sharp.
  • Ensure your child’s shoes fit well and their costumes are not too long, to prevent tripping.
  • Don’t let your child trick-or-treat alone. Be sure that if they don’t go with you, they are going with another trusted adult.
