Five Tips to Make Your Halloween Safe

Halloween

Miss Pat had the “Can Dos” gather round her and read the following tips for being safe on Halloween night.

“It’s fun going from house to house to collect as much candy as possible before your bag bursts.

This year, make sure you have an extra safe Halloween night with these trick-or-treat tips.

  1. When you’re making your costume, make sure you can see. Masks can make it hard to see, so try face paint instead. And make sure that other people can see you in your costume. Wear light colors and ask your parents to put reflective tape on your costume so cars can see you.
  2. Does your costume have a long cape or are you wearing a long dress? Make sure it won’t make you trip and fall. You don’t want to spill all the candy you collected!
  3. Plot out a trick or treat map with your mom or dad. Figure out which houses you want to go to and how long you think you’ll be gone. If Mom and Dad are not going with you, make sure you carry the map so you don’t get lost.
  4. Let your mom and dad look at your candy before you eat any of it. Throw out any candy that has an open or damaged wrapper.
  5. Candy is yummy, but if you eat too much of it you’ll get sick. That’s why Mom or Dad only let you eat a couple pieces each day. If you want to learn how much candy is too much, play the Halloween Candy game.

Now you’re all set to go out and collect as much Halloween candy as you can!”

Be Safe and Have Fun on Halloween

Halloween

The “Can Do” kids want to share their Halloween safety tips with you so you are sure to be safe and have fun on Halloween.

  1. Be sure to have a snack or dinner before you go trick or treating so you won’t be tempted to eat anything from your treat bag until you get home
  2. Don’t complain when your parents want to add some reflective tape on your costume. It will help drivers see you as you walk along a dark road
  3. Wear face paint and a hat and not a mask, since masks can make it hard to see, especially on dark roads.
  4. If you are with a group, with one or two parents, stay with the group, don’t wander off
  5. Don’t go into someone’s house unless your parent goes with you.
  6. Be respectful…say thank you for the treat, whatever it is, even if it is not a favorite of yours. You can always trade with a friend later or the next day.
  7. Once you get home, let your parents inspect everything you have in your treat bag to make sure it is safe to eat. They will check to make sure that all the candies are popular, well known candies that they recognize from the grocery store and they are all unopened and well sealed.
  8. Be sure not to share any small treats or toys with a younger brother or sister, as they might choke on them.
  9. Don’t eat too much candy at once. You will only have tummy troubles later on and that is no way to end a fun Halloween.
