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!

    We go as a group of parents and kids. Each kid has a refective pumpkin or something on them so cars can see. We have our cellphones, flashlights and can gauge how long they have been out and where each of them are at all times.

    We only trick or treat at our church and my mom’s neighbors so we know it is safe. I also do not let them eat anything that is opened. Always wear glow stick necklaces!

    We always bring a flashlight, i carry a bright orange (pumpkin ) bag so we can be seen as well. And usually have the boys wear glowing bracelets. We go to the local church and then to our neighborhood.

    We wear glowsticks when it is dark or go trick or treating when it is still light out.

    I have always put glowsticks on our children and now on our Grandchildren. I learned this year that you can cut open the top of a glow stick add it to clear nail polish and pain the nails with it . Your little ones nails will glow in the dark. We also choose light colored costumes to help stand out.
