Enjoy Halloween Family Fun with These Safety TipsWhen it comes to your Halloween family fun, put safety first!

From candy corn and pumpkins to witches and goblins, it’s time to celebrate the Halloween season. As you and your family get ready for the big night of trick-or-treating, ensure that you take the necessary safety precautions. Despite all the holiday fun, Halloween can be dangerous. Prepare your kids and check out these Halloween safety tips.

Costume Safety.

When choosing a costume, help your children find an outfit that’s comfortable and safe. Avoid tripping by selecting a costume with a hem above the ankles and comfortable walking shoes. Avoid any peripheral vision issues by nixing the mask; rather, encourage your child to wear non-toxic face paint or makeup instead. That way they’re able to see their surroundings.

Traffic Safety.

Aside from spooky jack-o-lanterns and porch lights, it’s dark out when you head out for a night of trick-or-treating. Dark costumes and pedestrians roaming the streets are a recipe for disaster. Ensure that your kids are visible to reduce their risk of getting hit by a car. Have them wear a light-colored costume or add reflective tape to their outfit. That way drivers are better able to see them.

Stranger Safety.

On Halloween, you meet lots of strangers. While most are harmless, it doesn’t hurt to remind your kids to be wary of strangers. Ensure that your children are aware of their surroundings and that they know never to enter a stranger’s home no matter the circumstance.

Candy Safety.

It’s never a good idea to eat any candies with an open wrapper. Check your kids’ candies and toss any open pieces or homemade pieces. That way you can prevent any mishaps.
