Following These Guidelines Will Insure a Fun and Safe Halloween


  • Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and choose light colors if possible.
  • Make sure costumes are short enough so your child won’t trip, and be sure to wear practical comfortable shoes to avoid injury.
  • Use non-toxic face paint or make-up whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct your child’s vision and make it hard to breathe.
  • If the costume has a prop that will be carried, choose a soft or rubbery one that won’t cause injury to your child or their friends.
  • Don’t carry fake swords, guns, knives or any props or accessories that look authentic.


Parent’s Safety Check List

  • Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers.
  • Alert your children to stay on sidewalks and always watch for traffic when crossing the road.
  • Review the “stop, drop and roll” procedure in case your child’s costume catches on fire.
  • Plan your child’s route and make sure they stick to it.
  • Give a curfew time and make sure they have a watch so they can adhere to it.
  • Children under the age of 12 should be accompanied by an adult. Have older children go in a group, remain with their friends and not be enticed to go off with others.
  • Check all candy before it is eaten. Throw away loose candy, candy that is not in its original wrapper, or looks as though it has been opened.


Older Children’s Safety Check List

  • Only visit well lighted houses and do not aproach dark or darkly lit homes.
  • Do not enter homes unless they are friends or are known to you.
  • Never accept rides from strangers.
  • Stay with your original group of friends and do not be enticed to go off with others.
  • Respect property and don’t trample through flowerbeds or gardens.
  • Pay attention to your surroundings. Be alert for cars and traffic and stay on sidewalks when possible.
  • Be polite and say thank you!
  • Be home by your designated curfew.
