Halloween is so much fun because it’s not like other nights of the year. Have fun and stay safe by following these tips:
See and Be Seen
After dark, kids aren’t usually swarming the neighborhood. But on Halloween night, they are. That’s why kids need to watch out for cars and other traffic.
Be sure that your mask or costume doesn’t cover your eyes or make it tough for you to see where you’re going. You might think about wearing makeup instead of a mask. If you do wear a mask, make sure the eye holes are big enough that you can see.
Kids also need to be seen on Halloween, so it’s a good idea to wear or carry something that glows in the dark. You might choose a glowing necklace, a glow-in-the-dark treat bag, or a flashlight. Your parents also can apply reflective tape to your costume.
You want your costume to look cool, but there’s nothing cool about tripping and stumbling all Halloween night. Make your costume trip-proof by:
making sure it’s not too long
wearing shoes that fit
avoiding swords, canes, and other props that can get in your way
