Following These Guidelines Will Insure a Fun and Safe Halloween

Costumes

  • 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.
