Enjoy Halloween But Stay Safe: Last Minute Reminders About Halloween Safety Tips
Halloween is a holiday that everyone wants to celebrate. And why not - it's full of creepy fun! Even so, unless you follow some simple safety precautions the fun may be missed. That's why the team at Package From Santa is sharing these last minute reminders about Halloween Safety Tips. Please take the time to read through them.
1) Trips and falls are common on this holiday. After all, trick or treating is sometimes done after dark. To help prevent this problem it is important to use makeup instead of masks. Also, ensure that costumes fit appropriate so they do not result in tripping hazards. Carry a flashlight for trick or treating in places without enough lighting. To help prevent falls from happening at your house you can take care that cords from animated displays and lights are out of the way or covered with duct tape or a rug. Also, make sure the walk area up to your front door is free from clutter or items that may get in the way of trick or treaters. If you will be using a candle in a jack-o-lantern, be sure the pumpkin is placed in a safe place, where it will not cause a fire or burn hazard.
2) Trick or treat with an adult. Children under the age of 12 or 13 should only trick or treat under adult supervision. Kids should be taught to never go inside the home of a stranger and to cross the street at corners or crosswalks.
3) Make sure you are seen. Lighter colors are better choices for Halloween costumes. These colors are more easily seen after dark. Glow sticks can be carried or worn around the neck. These add a unique element to Halloween costumes and they make the trick or treater more visible. Glow in the dark or fluorescent tape can also be used to help make it easier to see your little Halloween creatures.
4) Candy inspection. Candy should always be inspected by an adult before kids have permission to eat it. Some kids have allergies to peanuts and other common ingredients in candy. And of course, there is always the chance that someone will give out unkind 'tricks' instead of treats.
5) Follow any rules or regulations. Some cities have specific timeframes for trick or treating. And of course, most parents have their own ideas about times that are appropriate for kids to be out.
Remember, pets may need special attention on Halloween too. Keep them inside to keep them safe and never let your pet eat chocolate candy. Be considerate and courteous as you trick or treat and keep these safety tips in mind.
