Simple Tips for Keeping the Kiddos Safe this Halloween

It doesn’t matter if you live in the Phoenix real estate market or a new home in Sacramento, Halloween is the holiday kids look forward to all year long.

And what’s not to love? Ghoulie costumes and heaps of FREE candy!

But before you send the little ones out in search of fun-sized Snickers, familiarize yourself with these basic trick-or-treat safety guidelines.

Glow in the Dark

Be sure your child’s costume includes an element of lighting for nighttime visibility. Think flashing lights and glow sticks.

Stick with Sneakers

Cinderella’s glass slippers or dad’s work boots look super cute at photo time but when you’re out hunting treats, leave the costume shoes at home and lace up sensible footwear.

Costume Safety

  • Check masks for proper breathing and visibility.
  • Only allow flexible props to avoid injury in a fall.
  • Costumes should never drag on the ground.

The Dreaded Chaperone

Teens and tweens will beg you to stay on the sofa but the smart move is to have a parent present when trick-or-treating.

When children are at a suitable age for going solo, set a reasonable curfew such as 9pm.

Keep it Neighborly

Stick to areas you are familiar with and discard any “homemade” treats unless they come from households you know personally.

Have fun and Happy Halloween from Taylor Morrison!
