2. Dressing your child appropriately

Every year, thousands of children sustain injuries from wearing their costumes.

It is important to make sure the costume fits correctly so your child doesn't trip over it or injure themselves accidentally.

Pants, dresses, and capes should never be worn above the ankles since they can trip this way or else cause children to trip over them.

Shoes are also vital because, without them, anyone wouldn't have the ability to walk at all!

3. Avoid dangerous accessories

With all the excitement of Halloween comes a host of potential dangers.

Kids get injured by running into objects such as furniture and baseboards around the house, stepping on fallen decorations, and being accidentally punctured by sharp objects.

Your child needs to carry a prop sword or knife that is soft enough to bend should they fall while carrying them, so as not to suffer eye, face, and head injuries.

4. Supervise kids

All children under the age of 12 should be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.

And anyone responsible for a child should make sure that they place a label with their first and last name, address, and phone number somewhere on the clothing of the child.

5. Ensure Street safety

Before going out on Halloween night, your child should know to look both ways before proceeding across streets or intersections, wait until it’s safe.

Moreover, make sure you’re close enough to hold their hand while crossing.

Children young and old alike need to continue watching the traffic on streets while crossing streets with adults looking out for them from the sidewalk.

Remind them that cars can sneak up on all of us especially when they’re distracted by a costume or a need to get candy very quickly.

6. Closely examine candy

Check all your chocolates and sweets to see that they're unharmed, unwrapped, and presentable for the public.

There's nothing worse than a piece of candy with a pinhole in it - the last thing you want is to send out dangerous candy.

Also, make sure to throw out any homemade goodies as some people might try to sneak harmful substances onto Halloween treats.

This ensures the fruits are safe to eat as well as protect them from possible foreign objects. You can either manually examine each one or ask someone else to do it for you.
