Below is a list of a few quick tips to consider while out this Halloween and a fun Fall Event to attend, as well as a tasty Halloween craft the whole family will enjoy. Presented by The Children's Spot.
Trick-or-Treating Safety Tips
1. Plan your route beforehand.Knowing where you are going is not only safer, but better for your feet! It just makes the whole evening run smoother and more candy-filled.
2. Wear comfortable footwear.There will most likely be at least one hour of somewhat rigorous walking, so it's always a good idea to have comfy shoes on -- all of you! The glass slippers can be shown off back at home.
3. Use Face paint.If possible, avoid wearing masks. Masks can obstruct vision, something that is very important for those kiddos while navigating the costumed streets. Use non-toxic face paint to create your own unique mask!
4. Avoid long costumes.To avoid tripping, make sure to hem the little one's costumes so they don't drag along the ground. As a bonus, it also keeps the costume much cleaner!
5. Keep well-lit.It's always a good idea to apply reflective tape to costumes so they remain visible. Another option is having a light-up treat bag. And it's always good to have a spare flashlight.
