8 Ways to Stay Safe and Have Fun This Halloween

trick or treat

Whether your little one prefers ghosts and ghouls or princesses and puffy, fluffy, cutesy costumes, one thing holds true across the board: Halloween is fun! It gives kids a chance to dress up, stock their coffers full of candy, and even get into a little mischief. However, it’s important to make sure you address the very real safety concerns that come with a fun night trick or treating.

From being visible to neighborhood traffic to making sure the costume itself isn’t a potential risk for your child, here are some tips from us at Skateland to make sure you have a fun and safe Halloween this year in Bradford, MA.

  1. Don’t give your small children any props that are small enough to swallow or choke on.
  2. Add a little reflective tape to your kid’s costume so drivers can see them
  3. Make sure to have your little one’s name and home phone number attached to them somewhere in case they wander off during all the spooky fun.
  4. Make sure all masks, wigs, beards, etc. do not obstruct your child’s ability to breath.
  5. Stick to the sidewalk and avoid walking in the road even if other groups are doing it.
  6. Steer clear of candles or any sort of open flames. Costumes are often baggy or flowing and can catch fire fast!
  7. Supervise your little trick or treater. Kids will usually only trick or treat until they are 12 or so, but even the older kids should be supervised.
  8. Spend Halloween with us at Skateland!

A growing trend these days is to bring kids to a fun, safe indoor Halloween party. And at Skateland, we totally agree! Bring the little ones in for a great time on skates and make sure they dress up in full costume because we’re going to have a hauntingly fun time through the rest of October.

On Sunday, October 29, we’ll be having a super fun, skate-filled Halloween party! Stop by between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to join in or give us a call for more information!
