The picture above is what my daughter is wearing tonight, and its the exact pic on the packaging of the costume too, which is why I just had to post it! Isn’t it adorable? My toddler boy, by the way, is Thomas the Tank Engine (his idol), which is also too adorable for words.
Anyway, as we all know, tonight is the long awaited Hallow’s Eve, which means, trick or treating!!! As I’ve already posted of safety tips for pets, here’s what we should be aware of for our kids, which I will be explaining to my daughter too. Its never to young to learn to be a responsible Trick-or-Treater!! This one is from a website aptly called Halloween Safety.
1. Children should go out during daylight hours only unless accompanied by a responsible adult.
2. Plan a safe route so parents know where their older kids will be at all times. Set a time for their return home. Make sure that your child is old enough and responsible enough to go out by themselves.
3. Let your children know not to cut through back alleys and fields. Make sure they know to stay in populated places and don’t go off the beaten track. Stay in well lighted areas.
3. Stop only at familiar houses in your own neighborhood unless they are accompanied by an adult.
4. Small children should never be allowed to go out alone on Halloween. Make sure an older sibling or adult is with them.
5. Instruct your children not to eat any treats until they bring them home to be examined by you.
6. Instruct your child to never go into the home of a stranger or get into their car.
7. Make sure your child carries a flashlight, glow stick or has reflective tape on their costume to make them more visible to cars.
8. Let them know that they should stay together as a group if going out to Trick or Treat without an adult.
