This Halloween as our princesses and super heroes go house-to-house gathering tricks and treats, there are a few easy steps to take that will keep them safe and smiling. Some are the same ones we hear every fall, but others might surprise you:
- Trick-or-treat in a group and stay with your group. It helps to know your route ahead of time, too. The more parents accompany children, the better.
- Glow in the dark! Reflective materials and flashlights let drivers more easily see kids who accidentally wander into the street. The Center for Disease Control reports that children are four times more likely to be hit by a car on Halloween than any other night of the year.
- While it’s important to be seen, glow sticks should be handed out carefully
