Halloween Safety Tips
The night is quickly approaching when the streets will be filled with ghosts and goblins, not to mention brave heroes, princes, princesses and fairies. However, the excitement of the night can cause children to forget to be careful. There is no real “trick” to make Halloween a real treat for the entire family, except for basic safety principles. So parents, please take the time to go over these safety tips with your children!


Parents Should………..

– plan the route ahead of time

– have a set time for the children to return home

– make sure that all children under the age of 12 are accompanied by an adult.

– Instruct the children NOT to open their candy until they return home.

– Inspect all candy before children eat it.

– Explain the difference between tricks and vandalism. It is not a trick to throw eggs at someone’s home, or spread toilet paper on someone’s property.


Costume Safety………..

– When it comes to costumes make sure that the costume is bright in colour or use reflective tape or arm bands to ensure visibility.
– Make sure the costume is properly fitted.
– Make sure the material is flame retardant.

– Make sure the child’s vision is not restricted. Instead of a mask, try using face paints and/or make up.
– If props are required to complete the child’s costume such as a plastic, flexible sword, make sure the tips are not sharp.
– Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize – Glow sticks are a great way to increase the child’s visibility. Try incorporating it into your child’s costume by adding it as necklace or wristband.



Children Should………….

– Make sure their costume is bright and visible

– Carry along a flashlight or a reflective band, even if it doesn’t go well with your costume.

– Cross at intersections or marked crosswalks

– Never cross the road between parked cars.

– Only attend houses that are well lit. If there are no lights on, then do not attend.

– Never, ever go inside a stranger’s house.

– Try to avoid wearing heels, or wearing anything that dangles to the point that may cause you to trip.
– Use non-toxic make up instead of masks, as masks can limit or block your eye sight.
– Always walk…….never run.

– As a courtesy, remember to say “thank you”.

– Stay away from animals that are not familiar to you.

– Always go in a group.
