Trick-or-Treating Costume Safety Tips

Masks – Try to avoid masks if possible for younger kids. Masks can limit and block eyesight, cause muffled hearing, and even make breathing difficult. Opt for face paint or a funny hat instead.

Wigs and Wearable Accessories – When shopping for these, only buy items that are non-flammable.

Short and Soft Props- If your child’s costume comes with a cane, stick, sword, or other prop, make sure they’re short, soft, and flexible. Also make sure that none of these items have sharp points to avoid a possible injury.

Light, Bright, or Reflective – Costumes should be made of light, bright, or reflective colors and materials if you’ll be trick-or-treating at dusk or after dark. For extra safety, take some reflective tape and either attach it to your child’s costume or candy bag. Avoid black or dark costumes. These can make your child hard to see and are a safety hazard when crossing streets and intersections.

Always Check the Candy – Parents, always check your kid’s candy before they dive right in. Discard any open items. Discard any homemade treats as well unless you personally know and trust the person who gave them to your child.
