Halloween Safety Tips

Here are some safety tips to keep in mind this evening

Do not use masks. Masks make it hard for children to see what’s around them, including cars. Try a non-toxic make-up kit instead.

Make or buy costumes in light-coloured material.

Place strips of reflective tape on the back and front of costumes, so that drivers can better see your child.

Costumes should fit properly to prevent trips and falls.

Dress your child for the weather. Add layers if needed.

Children under 10 should be accompanied by an adult for trick or treating. By the age of 10, some children are ready to go trick-or-treating with a group of friends.
