Halloween Safety Tips 2022 - Premier Pediatric Urgent Care Provider in Texas - Little Spurs Pediatric Urgent Care

Happy Halloween! This fun, spooooooky time of year consists of many fun activities, but there are also a few things to keep in mind when it comes to safety! 

Trick-or-Treating:  

  • Accompany young children in the neighborhood and identify your surroundings.
    • Create a route prior to trick-or-treating
  • Teach your children to look both ways before crossing the street. 
    • Children should be supervised by an adult when crossing the street
  • Only approach homes that have a porch light on.
  • Never enter a stranger’s home or a vehicle for any treats.
  • Stay on sidewalks.

Costumes:

  • Comfortable shoes for walking. Supportive and clear of tripping hazards such as strings, bells, etc.  
  • Put reflective tape on costumes, or have your child wear glow sticks!
  • If wearing a wig, ensure it is fire-resistant.

Candy:

  • Inspect candy before eating
    • Make sure wrappers have not been tampered with
  • Choking hazard candies for children under age 4
    • Round candies like M&M’s and Skittles
    • Hard candies like Warheads
    • Extremely sticky candy like caramels and gum
  • Allergies
    • Weed out any candy that your child is allergic to (nuts, gluten, red dye 40)
  • Be aware of dangerous drugs that can be seen as candy, such as fentanyl. 

Tips For Your Home:

  • If you are handing out candy: keep your porch/driveway lit! 
  • Identify any tripping hazards and remove them from the sidewalk/yard.  
  • Non-edible options for trick-or-treaters include items such as stickers, bouncy balls, and glow sticks!
  • Try to hand out candy without nuts (just in case!)

Have a safe and happy Halloween!
