 With trick or treat rapidly approaching, here are a few safety tips to make sure your witches, ghouls and goblins have a fun and safe adventure.

1:  Pick the right size costume.  Costume should fit properly to avoid tripping hazards and allow for a full range of motion.

2:  Keep it bright.  The brighter the childs costume is, the easier they will be to see in low light conditions.

3:  Try makeup instead of a mask.  Masks can hinder a childs view.  Put your artistry to work and get creative.

4: Test out the makeup:  Try applying a small amount of the makeup to the childs skin beforehand to make sure there is no allergic reaction.

5:  Use non flammable fabrics:   Choose costumes made of nylon, polyester or acrylic.

6:  Arm you child with glow sticks:  Glow sticks are a cheap and easy way to add more light and to make a child more visible.

7: Go as a group:  The more the merrier.

8:  Always stay with the little monsters:  Adults should always stay with younger children.

9:  Choose homes wisely:  Pick the brightest homes to go to.

10: Never enter a home:  Advise your kids never to enter a strangers home.

11: Follow the rules of the road:  Adults should drive more cautiously on trick or treat and kids should try to use crosswalks and sidewalks.

12:  Check out the candy:  Dump the candy out on the table and check it out.  Dont eat partially unwrapped candy and throw out anything that looks like it may have been tampered with.

13: Be alert for allergens:  Allergies can be a nightmare.  Make sure to check whats in the candy before feeding to a child with allergies.

14:  As darkness falls the bigger kids come out:  Be mindful that bigger kids in scarier costumes tend to come out at night.  Early trick or treating is usually better for the little ones.

15:  BRUSH BRUSH BRUSH:  Brush those chompers good after digging into your hard earned treasure!

Have a safe and very HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!
