It’s that time of the year again. There’s a slight chill in the air as the official start of spooky season begins. Ghouls and goblins of all kinds will be going door to door asking for treats in no time at all, dressed up in their favorite costumes. While Halloween is a fun holiday that everyone can enjoy, it can be a little dangerous going out at night to collect candy, no matter how scary or fierce your little trick or treater might look. In today’s blog, Prosperity Day School, the best daycare center in Palm Beach Gardens, will go over some of the ways that you can keep your little ones as safe as possible while trick or treating this Halloween.

Trick Or Treat With Your Kids

While your little ghouls may want to go off by themselves, travelling with them is one of the best ways to keep them safe. Insist on travelling with your kids when they go trick or treating. If you have younger trick or treaters, it’s wise to be with them every step of the way in order to make sure that they stay safe the entire night. More experienced trick or treaters can have a little more autonomy when walking up to houses and getting treats. If your kids are old enough to go trick or treating by themselves, be sure you know who they’re going with and which routes they’ll be taking. If they have a cell phone, make sure it’s charged and that your child knows how to use it in case of any emergencies.

Travel In A Group

If you’ve ever watched an animal documentary, then you know that animals have a better chance at staying safe when they’re in a pack or large group. The same can apply to trick or treaters. Larger groups of adult-led trick or treaters will help to deter any bullies or thieves while also helping your group stand out, helping drivers and other motorists to see you better. Plus who doesn’t love spending time with family and friends while being dressed up in your favorite outfit. Stay safe and have even more fun this Halloween by gathering a large group of ghouls to go trick or treating.

Wear Bright/Reflective Clothing

As we said above, walking around at night can be dangerous no matter what kind of neighborhood you live in, especially if you’re wearing dark clothing. While costumes may stand out when there’s plenty of light out, they all blend in to the night as soon as it gets dark outside. Kids are also shorter, making them incredibly hard to see by larger vehicles. One of the best ways to make sure that drivers of all kinds can see you and your kids is to wear clothes that stand out against the dark. Bright colors will help you stand out, helping everyone see where you and your little ghouls are. You can also wear reflective clothing or incorporate reflective elements into your costume to help drivers and other pedestrians see you.
