Howling Halloween Safety Tips Kids Can Learn
Take time to discuss Halloween Safety with youngsters
Halloween is full of fun & laughter for everyone. With a little bit of extra time and discussion, we can make Halloween a super safe holiday without any scary moments. Well, except for the scary cool ghouls and goblins at the door!
On this page, I’ve done my best to include the very best Halloween safety tips kids can enjoy learning about. The next step is to work together to put the tips to work for our holiday fun. Take time to sit down with your kids to work out a plan for Halloween.
Will they be ‘trick or treating’ or will they attend festivals and carnivals instead? Or are they invited to or hosting a Halloween party?
Will there be one or more adults going along or supervising a group or party?
Are your sidewalks clear of any trip hazards and fire hazards? Are your outside lights working properly?
Do your young trick or treaters have safety light reflectors on their costumes or do they have safety lights to carry?
This isn’t an all inclusive checklist of Halloween safety questions, but is intended to be a catalyst for family discussion. As you get your Halloween costumes and candy ready for holiday fun, take some time to get your Halloween safety plans worked out together. Most of all, have a happy and safe Halloween!

Consider Non-Food Treats For Trick Or Treaters
Consider giving out non-food treats for trick or treaters who visit your home. Things like coloring books, stickers, pens and pencils or other small toys will reassure parents and may provide the child entertainment for a good while longer than candy would last.
The handy thing about giving out non-food Halloween treats is that you can make up Halloween gift bags for your trick or treaters ahead of time. Use some cute Halloween cello bags or party favor bags to include small gifts they can fit into their trick or treat buckets or bags.
Have some left over? You could take them to children at a homeless shelter or hospital if you want to donate them. Or, you can disassemble the favor bags and put everything away for next year!
If you use small gifts and favors that aren’t Halloween themed, then you can use them for stocking stuffers at Christmas. Another way to use any leftovers is to give them as Christmas or birthday party favors. How’s that for being thrifty AND Halloween safe?
