The Red Stick Mom’s Blog shares tips and tricks for a safe and fun Halloween.
Erika Poole with the Red Stick Mom’s Blog suggest following these safety tips when out trick-or-treating.
- Trick-or-treat during designated hours
- Be visible (Glow sticks, light up shoes, flashlights)
- Never go alone
- Follow all traffic rules
- Knock on doors that you know
- Don’t go inside of homes
- Stay on track
- Say No! (Stranger danger is important no matter how old your kids are, especially when trick-or-treating)
Poole also suggest participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project. This project focuses on inclusion for Trick-o-Treaters that have food allergies.
There are many children that have an allergy, so this is a great way to include every child. Poole said you can paint or decorate your teal pumpkin or buy one at a local store. Poole said while buying candy also pick up stickers, bubbles, glow sticks or other non-food items.
