Ways to Make Halloween Safe
Have children wear makeup instead of masks.
Avoid costumes with wigs, floppy hats or eye patches that block vision.
Avoid pointed props such as spears, swords or wands that endanger other children's eyes.
Put reflective patches somewhere on the costume.
Have children carry a bright flashlight to illuminate sidewalks, steps and paths.
Accompany younger children while they travel about the neighborhood. Older children should trick or treat in groups.
Inspect all candy before allowing children to have it.
Be sure the path and stairs to your front door are well illuminated and clear of obstacles.
