Are your kids excited and already preparing to go trick or treating?

Have a safe halloween

Halloween is an exciting time for them, but don’t forget there are things to watch out for to make sure it is a safe and happy Halloween this year. Here are some key Do’s and Don’ts for parents to take note of:


1. BE SEEN. Kids costumes should glow in dark. Buy or make the costumes in light-coloured material, give them flashlights and put strips of reflective tape on the back and front so drivers can see them better in the dark.

2. INCLUDE A NAME AND CONTACT DETAILS. Always put your child’s name, address, phone number on the costume in case they get lost. Consider giving your child a cell phone, so they can call you in an emergency.

3. ROUTE MAPS. Plan an early evening, draw a map and set a curfew. Make the fun start early so they make it home before its too dark. If your child is going with a group of friends, draw a map and ask them to follow the route and set the time they should be home.

4. ACCOMPANY YOUR CHILDREN. If kids are under 10 year olds, they should be accompanied by an adult for trick or treating.

5. PROPERLY SIZED COSTUMES. Costumes should fit properly to prevent trips and falls. Avoid items such as oversized shoes, high heels, long dresses or capes.


1. AVOID DARK HOMES. Do not visit houses that are not well lit. Tell your child never visit houses where the lights are dim or turned off.

2. NEVER GO INSIDE. Never go inside a stranger's house even if they seem to be friendly.

3. CHECK CANDY FIRST. Do not eat anything until all items have been checked by a parent. Tell your child not to eat anything before they get home unless you are with them or have already checked the treats. Parents need to go through all the treats to ensure they are safe to consume.

4. AVOID FACE MASKS. Do not wear face masks, because it would obstruct their vision. Try to use make- up instead.

5. DO NOT TRAVEL ALONE. Instruct your child always travel in a group, never leave the group and go on to small street alone.

We hope your Halloween night is full of fun and fantastical memories……ya know, they grow up way too fast!
