Halloween is almost here. It’s time for the spectacle of treats, crazy costumes for the kids and scaring each other silly. It’s also a time to remember to take some caution and safety preparation that can go a long way for our crazy little monsters of the night. Here’s a few tips on safety for this year’s Halloween in Albuquerque.
There’s always a higher risk of car accidents with children on this night, so we have a few ideas on how to keep the children as safe as possible.
You can try incorporating reflective tape or stickers into bags and costumes, as well as using face paint, as an alternative to visually obstructive masks. The kids are certain to find it fun to get their faces painted! Also try giving the kids some glow sticks, glow bracelets and whatever fun little glowing things you can find for them. Not only will extra fun be added to their costumes, but will help with added visual for drivers.
The younger children, 12 and under should never be out alone without their parents or a trusted adult to supervise. Try too to remind the older ones to stay in areas that they are familiar with, are well lit and give them the idea that going trick-or-treating with friends would be more entertaining. They’re certain to go for that!
