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!
