Halloween. A time of treats, inventive costumes for the kids and scary good times. It’s also a time to remember a little caution and safety preparation can go a long way for our tricksters of the night. Let us share some fun ways to stay safe for this year’s Halloween in Flagstaff.

The chance of a car accident for a child goes up an unpleasant amount this night more than any other, so we have a few ideas on how to keep the children as safe as possible.

One good way is to try integrating reflective tape or stickers into costumes and bags, as well as using face paint, non-toxic of course, as an alternative to masks that can be visually obstructive for young ones. Besides, kids love getting to their faces painted! Also give the kids some glow sticks, glow bracelets and whatever other glowing things you can find for them. Not only will that be added fun for their costumes, but it will help with added visual for drivers.

Younger ones, 12 and under should never be out alone without any adult supervision. Also remind the older kids to stay in areas that they are familiar with, are well lit and maybe suggest to them that going trick-or-treating with friends would be more entertaining. They’re sure to like that!
