10 Ways to Stay Safe on Halloween

When I was little, my grandmother the talented seamstress that she was made many of my Halloween costumes, I still have three of them, the clown, the pilgrim and Martha Washington. Years later, my brothers and I would just run up to the attic and dig in the Halloween trunk and make up a costume over the years we had quite a collection.

Halloween has changed a lot. I know people who love this holiday one of my best friends and it was also one of my mothers favorites.

Follow these tips to help make the festivities fun and safe for everyone:
  • Provide healthier treats for trick-or-treaters such as low-calorie treats and drinks. For guests, offer a variety of fruits and vegetables.
  • Use party games and trick-or-treat time as an opportunity for kids to get their daily dose of 60 minutes of physical activity.
  • Be sure walking areas and stairs are well-lit and free of obstacles that could cause someone to fall.
  • Keep candle-lit jack o'lanterns and luminaries away from doorsteps, walkways, landings, and curtains. Place them on sturdy tables, keep them out of the reach of pets and small children, and never leave them unattended.
  • Remind drivers to watch out for trick-or-treaters and to drive safely.
