Blogger Jamey Toney recently shared a list of Halloween safety tips on Patch. Here's a few of them:
- For costumes: If the costume is not already a bright color, add reflective tape so motorists and other trick-or-treaters can better see your child.
- For routes for older children: Older children: Plan older children’s routes ahead of time, so you know where they will be. Also, set a time for them to return home. If possible, send a cell phone with them to use in case of emergency.
- For candy: Provide your children with a healthy meal before they go trick-or-treating. This way, they won’t be hungry and will be less tempted to sample their candy en-route.
