Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is one of the most fun holidays of the year. However, it is important to be aware of the possible dangers that exist and to take precautionary steps to keep your family safe. Here are 3 tips for making your Halloween a safe one!

  1. Check all treats before eating. Children should have their treats checked by adults before they eat them. Just to be safe, you might even want to consider tossing out anything that doesn’t come in a pre-wrapped package.
  2. Light up the night. Make your children easily visible with flashlights or glow sticks. Some restaurants and fast food places even give away transparent bags for candy that include a glow stick you can put inside the bag. This limits the amount of things your child has to carry, but allows you to easily view them.
  3. Consider an alternative to trick-or-treat. You don’t have to take your children out to collect candy from strangers. Instead, you might take them to a haunted house or a hay ride. If you do take them out, consider taking them to friends and relatives so you don’t have to worry about what they may get in their bag.
