It’s that time of year again, folks! Halloween is upon us! As a kid, this was most definitely my favourite holiday, I’d count down the days, eats tons of chocolate, throw a party and plan the best costume I could think of. Now? Well.. not much has changed, to be honest
This year, I shall be sharing a post about kids’ safety on Halloween.
Grab a coffee, sit back, and enjoy the read!
7 Tips for For Kids to Keep It Safe on Halloween!
Candy and chocolate – Remind your kiddies to only eat their goodies once an adult has carefully inspected them. Make sure they only eat candies / chocolates that are wrapped and don’t have ripped packages.
Note to parents: this might also be the right time to take a few and stash them away for yourself later… muahaha!
Costumes – Flame retardant-ness is important, as well as making sure there is no tripping-hazard possibility. Face paint definitely safer than a mask… see and be seen!
Decorations – Adult supervision is needed here, but let’s face it, we love it too, so it’s a win-win. Anything flammable stays away from curtains, always and forever. Long, hanging decorations should be avoided… kids tripping is bad… may result in spending Halloween in an E.R.
Trick or treating – Kids should always go in groups, stick to one side of the street, then use the crosswalk to get to the other side once finished. Flashlights are a must, and only go to houses with the light on.
Handing out candy – Look out that window before opening the door! Doing all of this together with adult supervision is crucial.
Pumpkin carving – Kids, don’t try this at home! Have your kid draw the face they want on the pumpkin, then you can dig in and get your hands dirty…. literally.
Driving – This one is two-fold, guys. First, parents… no drunk driving, obviously. Second, kids MUST look both ways if they do need to cross a street when trick or treating.
Hopefully these tips will help you out Tuesday evening! But, please remember, despite with you may think, I’m not all-knowing… Google should be consulted as well
Thanks for reading and hope you all have a spooky, but safe Halloween!!
