What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Halloween? Is it carving pumpkins, wearing Halloween costumes and or eating lots of candy? Halloween is about all of those activities, but it’s important to remember safety!
Parents should take safety into account when going Trick-or-Treating with their children. Check out these safety tips from the CDC!
Make Halloween a fun and safe quality time experience with these ideas!
Parents, before Trick-or-Treating, sit down and talk with your child. Keep your child engaged and involved. Ask your child if he or she knows to stick by your side. Brainstorm all the rules you both come up with and talk together about safety lessons and safe Halloween tips!
Talking about all the rules you and your child came up with will help them remember and understand everything better! Remember, you should always supervise your toddler when trick or treating.
