The countdown is on and soon your streets will be crowded with zombies, villains and Sugarbugs. Halloween is a night full of fun for the young and old. Advanced precautions will help keep your Little Hero safe. Let the excitement and candy flow this Halloween night and follow our tips to keep your trick-or-treaters safe and sound.
Halloween costumes are all about standing out while being visible to motorists. Decorate your Little Hero’s getup with reflective tape or stickers. Masks and helmets can sometimes obstruct vision, so try to use face paint and makeup when possible. Additionally, equip your Little Hero with flashlights and glow sticks to help them shine their way through the streets and stay visible to motorists.
Tailor your child’s costume to their size so that capes or robes don’t lead to falls and trips. If your child is younger than 12, accompany them at all times. If your Little Hero is old enough to trick-or-treat on his or her own, remind them to stay in familiar areas and set a designated timeframe for them to ring doorbells. Trick-or-treating hours usually last from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Always make sure they travel in large groups and never alone. The more, the merrier.
