HealthDay has a few reminders for trick-or-treaters to make sure everyone has a safe and fun experience.

  • Make sure children walk on sidewalks. Remind them not to cut across people's yards or through their driveways.
  • Buy or make flame-resistant costumes and make sure they fit properly. Masks, hats or other accessories that are too big can obstruct children's vision. Costumes that are too large can cause kids to trip and fall.
  • Choose bright colors. Costumes with noticeable colors will ensure that kids can be seen in the dark. Add reflective tape to costumes and treat bags as an additional safety measure to make sure children are visible.
  • Wear comfortable shoes. Regardless of the costumes children choose, their shoes should be sturdy, comfortable and slip-resistant to prevent falls.
  • Remind children to avoid houses that are not well-lit.
  • Use flashlights. Children and parents should carry flashlights so they can see properly and others can see them. Teach kids that pointing a flashlight above chest level could block the vision of other trick-or-treaters.
  • Be wary of pets. Pets may be threatened when strangers approach their homes.
  • Bring a cellphone. If there's an emergency, a cellphone will allow trick-or-treaters to call for help.

The Centers for Disease Control also has tips on staying safe during Halloween festivities.
