HALLOWEEN CAN BE a spooky fun time
for children and their parents. Be prepared by
observing the following mnemonic.
Hazards can be avoided on Halloween by
taking the following precautions.
Adults or older children should accompany young ghosts and goblins on their
Light-reflecting costumes or orange
reflecting tape will ensure no one is mistaken
for The Invisible Man. Flashlights can also
brighten the path.
Look both ways before crossing the
street, and obey all traffic safety rules. Walk,
don’t run, to avoid fractures to little skeletons.
October can be cold and damp; find a
flame-retardant costume that provides protection from the weather.
Work your own neighborhood. There
will be fewer tricks among the treats from
people you know. Avoid any areas of the
neighborhood you are not familiar with.
Eyes work best when not blocked by
masks or patches.
Every piece of candy should be checked
by a parent for tampering. Throw away all
Never go trick-or-treating alone, and
always say thank you. C
