Trick ‘r treating in Kirkland for Halloween? So are we! Let’s do it safely with these 10 helpful Halloween safety tips.
 

If you’re out trick ‘r treating

  1. Keep in a large group while you’re out in Kirkland or Seattle trick r’ treating in order to maintain greater visibility.
  2. When it’s time to cross the street, do that in a group as well.
  3. More visibility: glow sticks and reflective gear also aid visibility, since you can’t count on drivers seeing you 100% of the time.
  4. It’s also a good idea to carry a cellphone for quick communication—just DON’T text while you’re out walking in the streets.
  5. Make sure that your kids only go to homes that have a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat.
  6. Never cut across yards or use alleys.

If you’re receiving trick ‘r treaters or staying around the house

  1. Make sure to clear their path of any dangerous items and/or tripping hazards.

You’d be surprised at the types of injuries that come up on October 31st each year.

  1. Keep jack o’ lantern tools away from kids. Opt for having them draw faces on their pumpkins with markers instead.
  2. Remember, you always have the option of handing out non-candy related items on Halloween, like fruit snacks and/ or coloring books.
  3. Make sure that, in all of the one-night-out-of-the-year candy binging, kids also get in a wholesome dinner!
