3 Safe Trick or Treating Tips
It’s that time of year again! We need to find a way to keep our children safe while we take our kids trick or treating. There are several ways we can keep our kids safe during the hours or trick or treating. Let’s dig in because this is an important part of having fun.
Things to Remember and Teach Your Kids
#1. No Homemade Goodies
It may be tempting to take accept homemade goodies while trick or treating, but it’s a smart move to stock to wrapped candies. Although some wrapped candies can also be troubling, homemade goodies can really have hidden trouble. I will just say to be wise about what you accept and let your children consume. Not everyone has the children’s best interest in mind.
#2. Bring a Flashlight!
It’s fun to trick or treat at night, but it’s so hard to see. That’s why we always bring a flashlight with us whenever we go trick or treating. I let the kids bring their own mini flashlight and they have a ball with it. I also carry a much bigger flashlight with me. To keep things a little safer I also have my kids dress in bright colors. I have to say I’m pretty surprised as to how dark it can get during Halloween trick or treat hours.
#3. Adults are Important
Trick or treating with an adult is extremely important. Try not to send your kids out trick or treating alone, having an adult with your kids is always a smart idea! I always go up to the door with my kid as well, you really don’t know what’s lurking on the other side.
I know all of these safety tips can be overwhelming, but it’s important to make sure these precautions, so everyone has a safe and fun Halloween!
