Halloween Safety Tips – for Your Home and the Trick or Treaters

Kids trick or treat. Halloween fun for children.
It’s almost time for  Halloween. The kids will soon have fun wearing their costumes and trick or treating in their neighborhoods. Here are tips to make this holiday a safe one:

Home Safety

  • Clear your walkway of any debris and wet leaves to avoid tripping or slipping hazards.
  • Keep pets inside, away from doors or windows so they won’t scare trick-or-treaters.
  • Don’t hand out candy that could be a possible choking hazard for young children.
  • Have your porch/entrance well lit if you are handing out candy. Keep the lights off if you do not want visitors.
  • Young children should not carve pumpkins.

Trick-or-Treating

  • A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children.
  • Older unsupervised children should go out with a group, follow an acceptable/safe route, and return home at a specific time.
  • Only visit homes with a porch light on and never enter a stranger’s home or car for a treat.
  • Put electronic devices down and keep heads up.
  • Stay on the sidewalks, cross only at corners, and don’t run across the street.
  • Make sure to carry flashlights, especially if staying out after dark.
  • Travel only in familiar, well-lit areas and avoid trick-or-treating alone.
  • Don’t eat any treats until returning home so you can carefully inspect them.

Costumes

  • All costumes, wigs and accessories should be made of fire-resistant materials.
  • Accessories like swords or knives should be made out of cardboard or a flexible material.
  • Pick brightly colored costumes and fasten reflective objects to clothing and bags so they are visible to motorists.
  • Avoid oversized or high-heeled shoes that can cause a child to trip.
  • Make sure masks or other head accessories don’t impede vision. (It is advisable to use make up or face paint instead of a mask.)
  • Avoid tripping hazards, make sure costume is not too long and shoes are the proper size.
  • Remove all makeup before going to bed to prevent skin and eye irritation.
  • Attach your child’s name and contact information inside their costume.

Halloween is Here! Scare up some Fun by Decorating Your Front Yard

Halloween is coming to town...With fall weather officially here, many homeowners start thinking about the start of the holiday season that begins with Halloween and then runs through the first week of January. Traditional holiday decorating can be fun, but for many homeowners, perhaps the most exciting decor is Halloween because it lets them get a little adventurous with both the interior and exterior of their homes.

When it comes to scaring up some good ideas to creep out the neighbors, experts recommend investing time and energy in making a front yard look as spooky as possible. With that in mind, there are plenty of easy do-it-yourself ideas you can knock out in a weekend just in time for those trick or treaters. Here are just a few:

Webs Everywhere
Some of the easiest decorations are the ever-popular fake spider webs. They can be easy to find at just about any local craft store. You can also make them out of yarn and can be as large as you like. See instructions here from HGTV.

Lighting Option to Bewitch Visitors
Particularly crafty owners can also make lighting fixtures and hang them on their porch or from posts in their yards to really cast a spell on visitors, according to Polka Dot Chair. Witch hats (which can be purchased from any costume shop) are paired with fishing line, a few pins, and LED lights to create a spooky atmosphere.

Straw-Stuffed Scarecrow
Another great way to have a simple DIY project that probably won’t cost much at all is to take an old button-up shirt and pair of pants nobody wears any more, and fill it with straw. Then you can stand it against a tree, sit it on a porch or otherwise incorporate it into a scary scene. You can use a pumpkin, a paint bucket, or something else as a head – or to recall Ichabod Crane’s old foe – simply go headless to put an extra-disquieting exclamation on your front yard. See instructions here and here.

Traditional Decorations with a Twist

And of course, what front yard Halloween decorations would be complete without that tried-and-true Jack-o-Lantern? You don’t have to rely on triangular eyes and a crooked smile any more, because carving enthusiasts post printable patterns for even scarier designs. And instead of putting a candle in that pumpkin, LED lights that are designed to flicker like candles might be a smart long-term investment.

Here Lies Halloween
Finally, many families can have a bit of macabre comic fun by cutting up cardboard gravestones and incorporate a few jokes about who could be interred there. Whether it’s famous movie monsters, “punny” seasonal names or simply family in-jokes, that kind of decorating effort can really give a yard a chilling addition. See ideas here, here and here.

There are also plenty of other ideas out there you can find online, or make up your own. The trick at this time of year is to be as creative as possible so visitors have a spooktacular time, whether they’re stopping in for a chat or just there to pick up a treat on All Hallow’s Eve.
