Halloween is an exciting time of the year. Candy, parties, candy, costumes, and of course, candy. Reduce the risk of injury and mishaps with these tips and tricks for kids and parents alike.
EDDIE THE YETI'S TOP TEN TIPS FOR A Safe & HAPPY HALLOWEEN.
1. Your child should know their name, phone number, and home address in case you’re separated. We highly recommend equipping each child with a Glow in the Dark Stretch ID (wink, wink).
2. "X" marks the spot. Plan your route ahead of time, especially for children old enough to trick or treat without supervision. The more prepared, the better the haul.
3. Jack O'Lanterns with lit candles should not be left unattended or near flammable objects. Consider using a flameless electronic candle, or simply fill the jack o'lantern with fireflies...
4. Glow sticks and flashlights should be carried to make the child more noticeable to drivers. They also come in handy for post trick-or-treating raves.
5. Zero is the number of times a child should enter a house. They should only accept treats at doorways...and from their dentists.
7. Inspect all candy for signs of tampering. Throw away anything that looks suspicious or that appears to be a fruit or vegetable. Those people should be ashamed of themselves.
8. Remove any choking hazards such as gum, hard candies, or small toys from the bags of young children. You may also want to remove your favorite candies, as they likely won’t last long.
10. Slow down the consumption of candy through rationing. This will prevent upset tummies and give you more time to “misplace” their best items.

9. Only accept and eat treats that are commercially wrapped. If someone gives you a toothbrush or a handful of pennies, politely hand them back and move on. They’re not worth your time.
6. Well-lit and familiar areas should be the only places children trick or treat without a chaperone (if old enough).
