Trick-or-treating Advice to Keep Kids Safe


Make your home a safe haven for trick-or-treaters by welcoming all the cleverly costumed kids with a well lighted front door entry.  Add decorations to make it pretty or spooky – however you want – with pumpkins, scary creatures and jack-o-lanters, and provide safe footing so you can easily fill their bags with goodies.

It only happens one night a year so make it special for the kids with a basket full of candy or healthy treats. You may want to get in the spirit too and dress up yourself!

The American Academy of Pediatrics has some suggestions for a safe holiday.

**Costumes that are bright and reflective will keep kids visible even on the darkest night. **Use reflective tapes so they’re easy to see.
**Masks can block eyesight so think about using non-toxic makeup instead.
**If you’re buying a costume, choose one with a label clearly indicating it is flame retardant.
**Give kids a small flashlight to carry
