Be safe this Halloween

Halloween is a great holiday for kids and parents alike.  Here’s a few things remember to keep your kids safe this Halloween

  • Always trick or treat in groups-  For younger kids, a responsible adult should be there.
  • Bring a flashlight or wear reflective tape- Some costumes are really hard for drivers to see at night and with kids darting from house to house it is important to make your group conspicuous to any cars.
  • Test makeup on small area first – Halloween is often a child’s first exposure to makeup.  The day before, test a little makeup on a small area of your child’s face first to make sure that it won’t irritate.
  • Check the candy! – Avoid homemade treats and candy that appears to have been altered.  Stick with candy that is in store packaging and that is not a choking hazard.
  • Watch out for open flames – You’ll often see candles while trick or treating.  This can be a recipe for disaster when dealing with costumes that may not be flame resistant.  So stay a safe distance away from them.

We hope you have a great Halloween.  We look forward to handing out candy to Superman, Elsa, Anna, Olaf, the Ninja Turtles, and everyone else this fall!
