Halloween Safety Guide

Halloween Safety Guide
It’s just about that time of year! With this super sweet holiday, be sure to make it a safe one as well. With help from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), I have created this safety guide for parents to ensure this Halloween is surely a treat!

When it comes to costumes:
• Steer children in the direction of bright fabrics, even better ones that are reflective
*** Add reflective tape to costume and trick or treat bags
• Make sure shoes fit comfortably and costume is of appropriate length to prevent any nasty falls
• Suggest hats or non toxic face paint instead of masks as a safer alternative
• Avoid swords or costumes with violent props
***A child can be easily injured if he trips/ falls
• Do not wear decorative contact lenses. As creepy and fun these might be, these lenses are not prescribed by a professional, cause serious damage and are in fact illegal.

When it comes to pumpkins:
• Young children should be encouraged to paint their pumpkin, not carve for obvious reasons
• For carved pumpkins, use flashlights for the safest lighting option. If candles are insisted, votive candles are safest.
• Candle lit pumpkins should never be left unattended
• Place lit pumpkins someone sturdy and far away from flammable objects (ex. Curtains)

When it comes to your home:
• Double check outdoor lights for visitors/ replace burnt bulbs
• Safety proof your outdoors for trick or treaters. Remove anything children could potentially trip over (ex. Flower pots, garden hose)
• Sweep wet leaves on pathway and steps, maybe even snow!
• Restrict pets from contact with visitors due to excitement (jumping, biting) or allergies

When it comes to trick or treating:

• Children should always be with a responsible adult, even just around the neighborhood
• Only knock on doors with lights on, that is the universal sign for “guests are welcome”
• Carry a cell phone (parents)
• Use sidewalks and stay on well lit streets
• For safety reasons, do not cut across yards
• Always use crosswalks and look both ways before crossing
• All children and adults should carry a flashlight
• Be sure your child is familiar with 9-1-1 in case of emergency

When it comes to health:
• Before children go wild, an adult should examine all treats throwing away all expired or treats that have been tampered with
• Candy is not the only treat, consider investing in fun Halloween coloring books/ pencils / nick nacks
• Ration candy and other treats to avoid belly aches and further health concerns

Stay safe and enjoy your Halloween!
