Tip #1: Don’t let your costume hurt you. Make sure all costume accessories (such as swords and knives) are short, soft and flexible. You don’t want to add a stop to the Emergency Room because your swashbuckler hurt themself on their pretend sword.

Tip #2: Don’t enter homes without being accompanied by a trusted adult. Remember, trick-or-treating fun is ringing the doorbell, crying “Boo!”, collecting your candy booty and going to the next home.

Tip #3: Don’t walk near candles and open flames. Costumes should be flame resistant, but, still exercise caution.

Halloween, Fall festivals and Harvest events provide opportunities for exercise and getting out with family and friends. For more tips on safe trick-or-treating, as well as food safety — it would be a shame to not be able to enjoy your candy booty — check out the Halloween Health and Safety Tips from the CDC, Center for Disease Control, as well as these tips for parents and drivers.
