Halloween can be a spooky fun time for kids and their families. Below is mnemonic to help you prepare for Halloween safety:
Hazards can be avoided on Halloween by taking the following precautions.
Adults or older children should accompany young ghosts and goblins on their Halloween hauntings.
Light-reflecting costumes or orange reflecting tape will ensure everyone can be seen by drivers.
Look both ways before crossing the street, and obey all traffic safety rules. Walk, don’t run, to avoid fractures to little skeletons.
October can be cold and damp; find a flame-retardant costume that provides protection from the weather.
Work your own neighborhood. There will be fewer tricks among the treats from people you know. Avoid any areas of the neighborhood you are not familiar with.
Eyes work best when not blocked by masks or patches. Best to choose face paint when you can instead of masks which may obstruct a child’s vision.
Every piece of candy should be checked by a parent for tampering. Throw away all unpackaged goodies.
Never go trick or treating alone, and always say thank you!
Stop by and see us Monday, October 31st! All kids in costumes will receive a treat!
