Tips for Halloween
a happy, safe, and fun Halloween!
1) Use bright clothing
for costumes or add reflective tape so children can be easily seen. Have
children carry a flashlight.
2) Have a hearty warm dinner before
trick or treating so children are not tempted to snack on uninspected candy.
3) Provide a treat from home that
the children may have while out and ensure that they know NOT to eat any
candy until it has been inspected by an adult.
4) If you have older children
who are going out unaccompanied, pre-plan a route that they follow and
set a time that they are to be home. Check to make sure
that at least one person in the group is wearing a watch.
5 If the children
are going to a Halloween party after trick or treating, have them call
you to let you know that they have arrived at the party destination.
6) Inspect all candy before
consumed and throw out packages with any openings or signs of tampering.
