There is no real “trick” to making Halloween a real treat for the entire family. The major dangers are not from witches or spirits but rather from falls and pedestrian/car crashes. Halloween is such a fun time of year for kids and adults alike, so its important that we take some precautions to keep it that way! Following is a list of trick or treating tips for your family:
- Plan a route in advance.
- Go out in groups.
- Wear comfy shoes.
- Stay well-lit.
- Make sure all costumes are short to avoid tripping hazards.
- Avoid masks.
- Use flexible props.
- Check your children’s candy.
- Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats made by strangers.
