The spookiest day of the year is creeping closer and closer. With Halloween right around the corner, many kids are preparing themselves for a sugary feast. Meanwhile, parents are doing everything that they can to keep this Halloween both fun, and safe. While Halloween is meant to be a scary holiday, it should be safe for kids.

Of course, there are the more obvious safety tips such as:

  • Plan a route in advance.
  • Stay on sidewalks.
  • Stay well-lit.
  • Check kids candy.

There are also tips about what kind of costumes should be used, such as:

  • Wear comfy shoes.
  • Avoid masks.
  • Avoid costumes that drag.
  • Use flexible props.

Doing these quick little things will help a parent keep their kids safe this Halloween, but what about making sure this holiday is fun as well?

Not every neighborhood is a good place to go trick or treating. Some may be too unsafe, while other may be too isolated. For instance, rural dirt roads do not lend themselves to good trick-or-treating. A parent may need to take a good look at the neighborhood where they live to determine if they want to trick-or-treat there, or go somewhere else.

Many towns and cities offer different trick-or-treating alternatives, such as events like trunk-or-treat. Doing a little bit of research can turn up some local events that might help make a child’s Halloween celebration truly spook-tacular!
