Halloween Trick or Treating Safety Tips
Thanks to Amanda Hardy, Henderson County Extension Agent for Family & Consumer Science UK College of Agriculture for sharing these tips!
S – SOFT: Swords & othercostume accessories should be soft & flexible so as to not hurt yourself or others
A – ALONE: Kids should not go trick or treating alone. Always have children either walking in groups or with an adult who is trusted.
F – FLASHLIGHT: Flashlights are great tools to make sure you are seen and that others see you!
E – EXAMINE: You will want to examine all candy and treats before your child eats them. For smaller children, beware of candy that can be a choking hazard.
H – HOUSE: Talk to your child about never entering a house of a person that you do not know and make sure another adult is with your child.
A – AVOID: Avoid eating homemade treats received while trick or treating
L – Look: Make sure that both you and your child look both ways before you cross the street going from house to house.
L – LENSES: Although decorative lenses may look cool, they can increase your risk of eye injury. Use caution if you decide to use them.
O – ON SIDEWALKS: Please stay on sidewalks as much as possible. If you must get on the road, make sure it is on the far side and that you are facing the traffic.
W – WELL-FITTING: Make sure all costumes are well-fitting. If costumes are too big, children may trip & fall. Masks that are too big may hinder children being able to see well.
E – EAT: Eat candy & treats in moderation.
E – EYEWEAR: Make sure that any masks are not covering the eyes. It may be a better idea to paint on a mask. Test any makeup on your child’s skin before Halloween to make sure he or she is not allergic & that it does not irritate the skin.
N – NEVER: Never walk near open flames or luminaries. Do not place candles & other flaming products near curtains or other flowy materials that can burn.
