Daily Dish - Think about safety

Filed under: Holidays

You've got the costume, you've bought the candy, your kid is bouncing off the walls. Just one more thing to consider -- safety.girl trick or treating
Most communities start trick-or-treating around 5 or 6 in the evening and let it run a couple of hours. Around here, that means thousands of kids ambling across busy streets in the dark.

Whether your child is young enough to need supervision or will be heading out on her own with friends, there are a few safety tips everyone needs to agree on.

Halloween Safety Guide has excellent tips for kids, parents, and for those heading out trick-or-treating or staying in to party. One of the biggest things to keep in mind is that kids need to be able to see and be seen on Halloween night. That means that makeup is safer than a mask, and reflector tape is a great addition to any costume. Visit the site for more safety tips before your little goblins head out.

We're talking about Halloween on DailyDish this week. Come back every day for more great tips!
