As our name implies, we simply LOVE candy. That could be why Halloween is one of our favorite holidays! Halloween is all about candy (and costumes, of course). When your kids go out trick or treating this Halloween, we’d like to make sure that they stay safe. After all, candy is great—but it isn’t worth getting hurt over! So here are some safety tips for all you ghouls and goblins out there.
- Kids should carry or wear something that lights up. Flashlights, glow bracelets, glow necklaces, and other flashing devices enhance visibility.
- Grown ups should try to plan out the trick or treating route in advance. This can help avoid any unforeseen obstacles—such as broken sidewalks or construction timber.
- Sneakers should be worn by all trick or treaters. Costume shoes might look cute, but they’re not very practical for a night of walking around collecting delicious Halloween candy. By the same token, avoid costumes that might drag on the ground.
- A general rule of thumb would be to stop trick or treating after 9pm. That will give kids ample time to collect the candy that they want without making them over-tired.
While you’re out there haunting the neighborhood, make sure you have a good time! And keep it safe.
Happy Halloween from Woodstock Candy!
