Trick-or-Treating Safety Tips

Posted by Wendy Moyle on September 25, 2007

Zombie Candy GrabberHalloween can be one of the most exciting nights of the year, but with all the activity and the possibility of staying out after dark, there are plenty of safety tips to keep in mind so your Halloween can be safe as well as fun! Share these tips with your kids before Halloween:

First, when you’re out Trick-or-Treating, never talk to strangers. Even if you’re tired of walking, never get into a stranger’s car or go into a stranger’s house.

Stay on the sidewalks and make sure to cross the street only at corners. Look both ways before you cross.

Carry a flashlight with you, so you don’t get lost after dark.

Make sure your costume is warm enough. Put on layers of clothing under the costume or bring a jacket in case the weather gets cold. Make sure your costume doesn’t trail or hang in a way that could cause you to trip. Make sure your mask doesn’t block your vision.

Put reflective tape, stickers, or glow-in-the-dark badges on your costume and treat bag to make you more visible to cars and other people during the twilight and evening hours.

Be sure to tell your parents where you are going. Trick-or-Treat with a group of friends or your family. There’s safety in numbers; plus it will be more fun!

Don’t eat any of your candy before your parents inspect it or say it’s okay. Throw away any candy that has already been opened, it might not be safe to eat.

Walk, don’t run. Tripping and falling down could really spoil your fun.

Always say thank you.

Review these safety rules before Halloween and post them in a visible place during the weeks of anticipation before trick-or-treating.
