There’s nothing spookier than Beggar’s Night. If your kids are going out to trick or treat this year, use these Halloween safety tips from Tipton Hyundai to keep everyone safe and comfortable.
Before the big night, check everyone’s costumes for length. If a costume hangs below the ankles, consider hemming it to avoid potential tripping. Also make sure your children’s costumes are accompanied by comfortable shoes – no parent wants to carry their kid from house to house for trick-or-treat.
Skip the Mask
Masks can be uncomfortable or even make it difficult for your child to breathe after a period of time. Opt for safe face paint instead, or cut a mask to make sure that it leaves plenty of room for the mouth and nose – just make sure the mask won’t impair their vision, either.
Stay Well Lit
If your kids have dark-colored costumes, consider having them wear a reflective vest or reflective materials of some type. You want to be sure that each pedestrian is visible to drivers. If your child doesn’t want to add a vest to their costume, have them carry a flashlight to keep them in sight.
Check the Candy
Don’t let your kids dive into their candy stash before you have a chance to check it. Look for any candy that seems to have been tampered with, has tears or punctures in the wrapper, or looks suspicious in any way.
At Tipton Hyundai, we hope you have a safe Halloween!
