Walk through your neighborhood with others to discourage acts of malicious mischief and speeding motorists
Set a specific time limit for your child/children to be out
Only give homemade treats to children you know. Make sure the treats are properly wrapped
Give commercially wrapped treats to children you do not know
Instruct your children to never enter the home of a stranger
Never invite children into your home
Instruct children not to stray from their group
Children should never be allowed to go out alone
Always know who your children are with
Always escort your children. If you cannot escort your children, you should select another trusted adult to escort them
Adult escorts should carry flashlights
Children should walk, not run, to avoid tripping
Children should never accept rides from strangers
Turn your porch light on to let children know it’s all right to visit your home
Instruct your children to stay in their own neighborhood and to trick or treat at homes that have porch lights on
Know the exact routes your children will take
Children should never take shortcuts through backyards, alleys or parks
Children should carry trick or treat bags that have strong straps or handles. This allows a child to carry the bag in one hand, leaving the other hand free
Children should wear identification bracelets
Children should trick or treat during daytime hours
At night, children should stay on well-lit streets; Children should wear costumes made of white or light colored material. The costumes should be fireproof. If the costume is made of dark material, attach reflector tape on the costume to increase nighttime visibility
Children should wear comfortable, proper fitting costumes and shoes. Oversized costumes, shoes, boots or loose fitting high heels can make it difficult for children to walk.
Props, such as toy guns, swords and knives should be made of soft rubber, Styrofoam, cardboard or other pliable material. Replica firearms that could be mistaken for real firearms should be avoided. If your child carries a jack-o’-lantern, a flashlight should be placed inside, not a candle. Children should use non-allergenic facial makeup instead of masks. Make sure you apply a thin coat of cold cream before application of any makeup. The makeup will come off easier if you do this. Masks can restrict vision. If your child wears a mask, make sure he/she removes it when he/she crosses a street. Older children should attend an adult-supervised Halloween party, instead of going out to trick or treat. Younger children may enjoy attending an adult supervised Halloween party instead of going out to trick or treat.
Children should look in all directions before crossing the street and should obey all traffic signals.
Children should always walk on sidewalks and not on streets. Children should cross streets at corners. They should never cross streets between parked cars, in the middle of blocks or diagonally across intersections; and streets in rural areas without sidewalks should be avoided. If there are no sidewalks, children should stay as far left of the roadway as possible anwalk facing traffic.
Halloween is a time for ghosts and goblins and fun with your friends. Almost everybody is nice, but sometimes a few people play mean tricks on children at Halloween. These tricks include putting dangerous things in candy and treats.
