Tuesday's Tip

Pin It

Halloween is fun but it can be some cause for concern so the best way to enjoy the night is to play it safe.  Here are some tips that I found which will ensure a great night for you and your little ones.

  • Have adult supervision. Accompany your kids if you don’t think they’re old enough to trick-or-treat on their own.
  • There is safety in numbers. If they’re old enough to trick-or-treat without an adult, tell your kids to stay in a group.
  • Map out your plan. Designate a route before your kids begin trick-or-treating, and make sure they stick to it.
  • Take the long way 'round. Have your kids trick-or-treat in areas where there are a lot of people around. They should also avoid taking short-cuts through alleys and parking lots.
  • Try tick-or-treat-friendly homes. Ensure your kids only visit houses with lights on. And, you might also suggest the houses they visit have some sort of Halloween decoration on the porch.
  • Stay outside. Make sure your kids don’t go inside someone’s house. They can get their candy from the porch.
  • Remain visible. Dress your kids in a bright costume so others can see them. If their costume is dark, have your kids wear reflective strips or carry a glow stick or flashlight.
  • Remember, shorter = safer.Goes without saying but just in case you forget, ensure your kids’ costumes aren’t so long that they can trip over them.
  • Don't cover the face. Instead of masks, have your kids wear make-up so they can see better.
  • Quality-check treats. Check your kids’ candy before they eat it. Throw out any candy that is not in its original wrapper or looks like it has been tampered with.
  • Say "no" to strangers.Tell your kids to never accept a ride or go anywhere with a stranger.
  • Obey the law. Encourage your kids to follow all the regular rules for walking around. That includes looking both ways before crossing, obeying all traffic laws and using cross walks and crossing lights where available.
  • Have a great time! Finally, make sure your kids have tons of fun and get lots and lots of candy.

  1. Debbie I hope you don't mind if I add one more tip please, please, please keep your black cats inside. There are people who use black cats as victims on Halloween

  2. Good Evening Debbie, what a sensible list of tips for parents and children to abide by. We do not have many trick or treaters where I live, but we always buy lots of chocolate goodies for the children who do visit us. It's great fun seeing the children dressed up for Halloween. All the children that visit have their parents with them, they usually wait at the front gate and watch the children come to the door. I hope children do come and visit tomorrow, but the forecast is rain I'm afraid.... but I will be ready and waiting with my bowl of goodies for those who do come. Enjoy your evening. Best Wishes Daphne

    1. Such fun isn't it? I hope that your weather holds out and you get to enjoy all the little ones Daphne. I hope you have a wonderful evening as well!
