For moms and dads, to ensure a fun and safe Halloween night for your kiddos consider these safety tips.
Map your trick-or-treating route ahead. Plan ahead which route is safe for the kids, which houses the trick-or-treaters should visit or which houses to avoid. Make sure that there are chaperones or a few bigger children with the group. For younger kids (2-5) it's better to have an adult company.
Trick-or-treat before dark. If you have younger trick-or-treaters, it's better to take them trick-or-treating early or before it gets dark. The earlier the better, when the road is still not busy and visible and they can snag better candies!
Wear a comfortable and well-fitted costume. You have to ensure that before buying your kids' costume, ensure that they are comfortable to wear and fit well on your kids so that they can move freely all night long.
Protect your kid’s face. Make sure that your kid's costume accessory or mask is not tight and the eye-holes are twice as large as his/her eyes so that he/she can see properly. Or you can even avoid masks by using non-toxic face paint.
Wear reflective costumes, gear or Halloween light sticks. During Halloween night, streets are also busy.
