Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!

It’s finally here.

The kids have been in their costumes since they got up this morning. Their ready for the pre-trick or treating party that our neighbor is hosting and all the candy they can carry. Woo Hoo.

With as fun as Halloween and Trick or Treating is I wanted to share some safety tips for your little ghosts and goblins.

*Make sure an adult or an older responsible youth will be supervising children under 12.

*Costumes should not be so long that they are tripping hazard. Falls are the leading cause of injuries on Halloween.

*Plan the route trick or treaters intend to follow.

*Instruct your children to travel only in familiar areas and along an established route.

*Teach your children to stop only at houses that are well-lit and never to enter a stranger’s home.

*Establish a return time.

*Tell your youngsters not to eat any treats until they return home.

*Incorporate glow sticks into your child’s costume. It will make them easier to see in the dark.

Be Safe and Have Fun!
