From family friendly fright fests and scary movies, to trick-or-treat parties, Halloween is crazy fun for ghouls and kids of all ages! We hope you have something fun planned for the spooky weekend ahead. Whatever your plans might be, more than likely you’ll need a costume. Don’t have a costume? Look no further! We’ve put together a few simple costume ideas for you with several props that you probably already have around the house.
In addition, don’t forget the importance of Halloween safety. Whether you’ll be traveling from door to door with the kids, or driving to a Halloween party, we encourage you to glance at the tips below to ensure safety:
- If walking, cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks
- Put electronic devices down and keep heads up while walking or driving
- Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups.
- Keep costumes both creative and safe
- Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers
- Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances
- Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. Limit the amount of treats you eat
