Trick or treat in groups.
Always keep an accurate headcount traveling through your neighborhood.
Hold a flashlight so others can see you.
Bring along a flashlight or propane powered camping lantern.
Only walk on sidewalks when possible.
Never let your group cut through alleyways or take dark shortcuts.
Make certain to only eat factory-wrapped treats.
To ensure the quality of treats received, only let children eat brand name, store bought candy.
Plan your trick or treat route.
It’s always best to be prepared! Take the time to plan your route.
Small children should never carve pumpkins.
Rather than carving a pumpkin, be safe and let toddlers use markers and stickers.
Only trick or treat at homes with a porch light on.
Homes with exterior lights on are a sign that they welcome costumed guests on Halloween!
Never trick or treat on an empty stomach.
A healthy meal before Halloween festivities helps to curb candy overindulgence.
Give out only commercially wrapped candy.
Provide brand name, wrapped treats—parents will appreciate it!
Always test make up in a small area first.
When using costume make up, always apply to a small area first to test for an allergic reaction.
Secure pets properly or keep inside.
Pets may be confused by Halloween fun, keep them away from the festivities.
