- Test for allergies. Apply any face paint or costume makeup in a small area on your child, at least 24 hours before Halloween to check for allergic reactions.
- Travel in groups. Adult supervision is ideal for small children. However, if older children are allowed to trick-or-treat on their own, they should travel in groups of four or more. Routes should always be agreed upon with adults and cell phones should be carried to stay in touch.
- See and be seen. Children should wear reflective tape on their flame-retardant costumes and if masks are worn they should not impede vision. Flashlights should be utilized.
- Never go into a home. Tell your child that candy should be given at the door and there is no need to enter a home.
- Obey traffic laws and curfews. Pedestrian traffic laws should be obeyed and whenever possible, cross within a crosswalk. Town curfews on Halloween are for safety and should be adhered to.
- Check your candy. Adults should inspect all candy collected. Any suspicious looking or unwrapped candy should be discarded.
