Halloween Safety Tips
Posted by Pristine Home

Halloween can be one of the most exciting times of year for children. This sweet filled holiday will keep children on a sugar high for weeks. However it can also be quite a dangerous time of year with bomb fires, fireworks and strangers. This is why we here at Pristine Home have decided to put together a few safety tips for not only children, but parents, homeowners and driver.

Halloween Safety Tips for Kids:

  • Trick-or-treat in a group or with an adult.
  • Look both ways before crossing streets and only cross the street at corners.
  • Be sure your costume is not too long. You don’t want to trip or fall.
  • Shoes should fit comfortably.
  • Consider using “face paint” instead of a mask. If you wear a mask, be sure you can see out of it clearly.
  • Be sure your parents always know where you are going to trick-or-treat and stay in familiar neighbourhoods.
  • Keep away from candles and open fires.
  • Accept treats only in doorways. Never go into a house.
  • Only visit homes that have the lights on.
  • Carry a flashlight.
  • Be cautious of animals.
  • Let parents check your treats before you eat them.
  • Never eat unwrapped candy, opened candy or fruit given to you on Halloween.

​Halloween Safety Tips for Parents:

  • Make sure your child eats dinner before setting out.
  • Children should always carry spare change or a cell phone to call home, if necessary.
  • When buying costumes, look for flame retardant material.

Halloween Safety Tips for Homeowners:

  • Keep your garden well-lit if you plan to pass out sweets. Turn your lights off if you won’t be home to discourage children from approaching your property.
  • Make sure your yard is clear of such things as ladders, hoses, dog leashes and flower pots that can trip young children.
  • If you use candles, place the pumpkin well away from trick-or-treaters.
  • Make sure paper or cloth yard decorations won’t be blown into a flaming candle.
  • Healthy food alternatives for trick-or-treaters include packages of crackers with cheese or peanut butter, packaged fruit rolls, mini boxes of raisins or microwave popcorn.
  • For non-food treats try pencils, stickers, coins or plastic toys.

Halloween Safety Tips for Drivers:

  • Drive slow, with caution, all evening.
  • Adult Halloween party goers should have a designated driver.
