Many times your child’s costume may have some sort of mask, hat, or headpiece that goes along with it. If that is the case, make sure that the item does not obstruct from your child’s vision. A great alternative to avoiding this problem is using non-toxic face paint to create the look your child is going for!
Make sure that your child wears colours that are light and bright. This will make your child much more visible if you are trick-or-treating in the dark.
Your child should avoid wearing any oversized clothing while trick-or-treating. Children love to run from door to door while trick-or-treating, and if they have large, bulky costumes, it can make it difficult to do so.
Have your child wear reflective tape, lights, or stickers while trick-or-treating so that vehicles can easily see them. If possible, start trick-or-treating while it is still light out.
Bring flashlights with fresh batteries in them for you and your child to carry, and tell your child to only go to homes that have their lights on.
If possible, make sure to walk on paths at all times. If you are trick-or-treating at night, it can be hard to spot possible hazards while cutting through people’s gardens.
Before Eating Any Treats
Make sure to inspect all treats before letting your child eat anything. If something is completely unwrapped, or even slightly opened, discard that treat.
Make sure everything your child received is age appropriate. For example, boiled sweets can be a choking hazard for young children.
We hope you and your family have a fabulous and safe Halloween!
