Keep these tips in mind to have a fun and safe New Haven, CT Halloween.
With Halloween just over a week away, your neighborhood is most likely filling with spooky decorations and stores are stocking up on candy. To ensure that you can fully enjoy the holiday, keep these Halloween safety tips in mind.
When choosing the right costume for your children, choose one that fits properly so that they do not trip while trick or treating. Avoid buying costumes that include a mask, since masks can interfere with your child’s ability to see. Instead, use face paint or makeup to complete the look.
Before you hit the streets to go trick or treating, make sure that your children have a filling, healthy meal. If your kids have a full belly, they are much less likely to munch on their candy before they get home. It will also help any younger children avoid a hunger meltdown in the middle of the street.
If you have older kids who will be trick or treating with their friends, set a curfew for when they need to be home. Consider hosting a post-trick or treating party for your kids and their friends so that they are not staying out all night.
If you are driving on Halloween night, make sure to use extra caution. Kids are very excited and can easily dart out into the street with little or no warning. Keep your eyes open and slow down, especially when driving in residential areas.
Consider the safety of your pets this Halloween. Furry friends can easily dart out the front door when handing out candy. Keep a close eye on your pets and consider bringing them inside to stay safe.
