Halloween is a very fun time for your family to dress up and enjoy parties and what we all look forward to at Halloween – candy. Airpark Collision Center would like you to be as safe as possible.
Here are some tips to keep in mind to ensure your night goes well.
1. Try to have a route planned ahead of time.
Since trick-or-treating can have you several streets from your house, mapping out a route of your neighborhood is a great idea. Try and stay on paths that you and your child are comfortable with to avoid getting lost.
2. Remember the comfortable shoes.
If you are planning a long route, make sure children are in comfortable, well-fitting footwear. Stay away from heels if you are a girl with a dress, and avoid tripping in the dark by double tying your shoelaces.
3. Keep well-lit.
You want your children to be seen by drivers on the road, so reflective tape is a great option. Also, keep a flashlight with you to help your child’s path stay lit at all times.
4. Try to watch your costume’s length.
Lengthy costumes that drag on the ground can be hazardous, more-so at night. After buying your child’s costume, make sure it’s an appropriate length, and hem anything that’s too long to avoid tripping.
5. Try to stay away from using masks.
Seeing and breathing can be difficult in a mask for your child. If at all possible, skip the mask altogether and use non-toxic make-up to complete the costume instead.
