Review this list as the sun rises on Halloween and make sure all are checked before dusk.


•Remove hazards from front porch and yard, such as pots, branches, candles and hoses.

•Confine household pets, and make sure they are wearing collars.

•Leave jack-o-lantern carving to adults and use battery-powered lights.


•Talk to children in advance about boundaries for how many pieces of candy will be eaten Halloween night (three to five recommended).

•When choosing candies to give on Halloween, select ones with nutritional value like chocolates (the darker the better) or candies with nuts.

•Send kids trick-or-treating on a full stomach by planning an easy meal, like a bowl of whole-wheat pasta or a quick peanut butter and banana sandwich.


•Make sure masks have eyeholes large enough for full vision.

•Check for loose clothing that could easily brush up against jack-o-lanterns.

•Read labels to make sure fabrics are flame resistant--remind to stop, drop and roll.


•Test props to make sure they are flexible and confirm face paint is non-toxic.

•Add reflective tape and stickers if costumes are not bright.

•Ensure kids carry a flashlight and cell phone.


•Chaperone children age 13 and younger.

•Remind kids to stay on sidewalk; walk facing traffic and avoid shortcuts.

•Set a rule to visit only well-lit houses and remain on porch.
