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

It’s that time of year! As you take your child trick or treating, here are a few safety tips to keep in mind:

  1. If your child’s costume is a dark color, add reflective tape.
    • Glow sticks and flashlights are also good options.
  2. Make sure your child’s costume fits, to avoid tripping. If it is too long, pin it up before going trick or treating
  3. Try to choose a non-toxic face paint instead of a mask, which can obscure your child’s vision. If they are wearing a mask, have them take it off before crossing the street.
    • If you choose paint, test it beforehand to make sure your child does not have a reaction. Thoroughly wash it off before going to bed to avoid irritation.
  4. Teach your child to look both ways before crossing the street.
  5. Check your child’s candy. Throw away the candy if it looks like it has been tampered with.
  6. Go down one side of the street at a time, cross the street at corners.
  7. Children should trick-or-treat with their parents if they are under the age of 13. If over, use the buddy system. Trick-or-treat in groups, and make sure someone has a cell phone.
  8. If you are handing out candy, avoid candies such as M&M peanuts (for those kiddos with allergies).
  9. Have fun! There are a lot of things to look out for during Halloween, but follow these tips and tricks and it will be a night of candy, costumes, and fun!
