Ways to Make Halloween Safe

  • Have children wear makeup instead of masks.

  • Avoid costumes with wigs, floppy hats or eye patches that block vision.

  • Avoid pointed props such as spears, swords or wands that endanger other children's eyes.

  • Put reflective patches somewhere on the costume.

  • Have children carry a bright flashlight to illuminate sidewalks, steps and paths.

  • Accompany younger children while they travel about the neighborhood. Older children should trick or treat in groups.

  • Inspect all candy before allowing children to have it.

  • Be sure the path and stairs to your front door are well illuminated and clear of obstacles.
