Halloween Safety & Footwear Recommendations

Safe Walking Routes

  • Encourage children to establish eye contact with drivers before crossing roads.
  • Prioritize walking on sidewalks or designated paths. In the absence of sidewalks, walk against the traffic on the left. Opt for direct routes with minimal street crossings.
  • Be vigilant about moving cars, especially those turning or reversing. Instruct kids to avoid sudden dashes onto roads or crossing amidst parked vehicles.

Costumes Safety Tips

  • Enhance visibility by adding reflective tape or stickers to costumes and bags. Light-colored costumes are preferable.

  • Ensure costumes fit well to avoid tripping hazards.

Tips for Handling Halloween Goodies

  • Serve a hearty meal before trick-or-treating to reduce candy consumption.
  • Think beyond candy for treats. Consider stickers, erasers, crayons, pencils, coloring books, and allergy-friendly options like sealed dried fruits.
  • Upon return, inspect all treats. Discard any with damaged packaging or those that appear tampered with. Avoid homemade treats from unknown sources.
  • Prevent young kids from consuming potential choking hazards like hard candy or gum.
