Keep Your Kids Safe On Halloween

Halloween is such an exciting and fun time for our kids; I remember my son running here and there Keep Your Kids Safe On Halloween(with me running behind him, of course), talking to the neighbors, meeting friends, loving the thought of all that candy (which mostly disappeared before he got it the next day). It was during the time when razor blades had started appearing in apples. So it can be a scary time too and it seems to get a little scarier each year.  Sometimes we just don't think of the little things. Here are some tips to ensure a Happy and Safe Halloween for all.

Halloween Safety For Kids

  • Always look for the Flame Retardant label when purchasing costumes. Avoid costumes with filmy materials or wings or long sleeves.
  • Use reflective tape to decorate or trim your child’s costume/clothing; trim that will glow in a car’s headlights. Bags or sacks should also have reflective trim. Reflective tape can be found in hardware and sporting goods stores.

  •  Children should also carry flashlights to be able to see hazards in front of them.

  • Apply a mask with cosmetics rather than using a face-mask. The face-mask can obscure vision and/or restrict breathing. If you choose to use a mask, make sure it fits properly to allow them full vision.

  • Costumes should not be so long that the child trips over the hem.

  • Have them wear sturdy shoes that fit well. High heels are not a good idea.

  • Hats and scarfs should be tied properly so that they don’t become a vision blocker. In my opinion, scarfs are probably not a good idea. They can be grabbed too easily.

  • Swords, knives, and other weapons should be of soft and flexible material.

  • Children should never enter a home or apartment unless an adult accompanies them.

  • Stay away from candlelit pumpkins on a porch; costumes can easily ignite.

  • Warn children not to eat any treats until you have a chance to look them over. Check all edibles in the bag that your child brings home. Report anything suspicious to your local Sheriff/Police.

Great, timely post Toni! I remember when my son was young, we went with him door to door even when he didn't want to. I'm amazed to see so many young children running on the streets without any supervision these days.
