Halloween Safety Tips for Kids

It’s just around the corner! The greatest candy-giving day of the year: Halloween!

But before you dust off your Zombie-Superman costume, the Campfire Blog would like to remind you that you need to be extra safe when trick-or-treating this year. Halloween is a fun and festive event, but as with everything, you need to be careful so you can make the most of your spooky evening.

Here are some simple tips to keep in mind while you’re stuffing your face with delicious treats!:

1. Walk in Groups (or with a trusted adult) – It’s much more fun to trick-or-treat with friends, so be sure to roam the streets of your neighbourhood in a group or with a trusted adult.

2. Get Seen! – Those who’ll be driving their cars on Halloween night need to see you coming, so be sure to strap some reflective tape to your costume so oncoming cars and bicyclists can avoid colliding with you and spilling your candy!

3. Inspect Your Treats – Before you start eating ANY of your candy, make sure your parents or guardians take a look inside your bag to make sure all of your treats are safe to eat. Although it’s tempting to eat candy while trick-or-treating, wait until you get home to show your parents and then start your feast.

4. Bring a Flashlight – If you bring a light with you, not only will you be able to see better, but those around you will also be able to see you coming. Remember, you want to remain seen by motorists and bicyclists at all times.

5. Look Both Ways – This is a tip you should remember all year long: Look both ways before crossing the street. Only walk when the coast is clear.

6. Make Sure Your Clothes Fit - Wear well-fitting masks, costumes, and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips, and falls.

7. Never Walk Into a House – Unless you’re with a trusted adult, never walk into a person’s house (even if you’ve been invited in). Just stay outside and collect your treats!

8. Don’t Eat Too Much Candy! – Ha ha! Ya right!

There are dozens more tips and safety guidelines you should follow while trick-or-treating this year, but the list above highlights some of the most important. For more information on how you can stay safe this Halloween, check out the links and resources below. Trick-or-Treat!
