Halloween Safety Insights To Keep Your Family SafeHalloween is fun and exciting for kids and their families but is always important to remember safety considerations. Even though we are part of a kid’s friendly community here in West Boynton Beach we follow some “common sense” rules that we thought you would find interesting to apply to your family.INSERT ACCORDION CODE!!!!!!MAKE A FAMILY PLAN
Kids 12 and under, should be accompanied by an adult and clothing should be labeled with your name, address, and phone number in case you get separated.
If your child is older than 12, make sure he/she has a way to reach you via cell phone.
Establish a pre-planned route and curfew for kids over 12.
Choose bright colors that make your child more visible in the dark.
Any store-bought costumes and accessories must be labeled "flame resistant."
Avoid oversized clothing.
Your child should wear comfortable shoes
If you allow your child to carry a prop sword or knife, it should be made of soft plastic or rubber
Masks can obstruct your child's view, instead, apply non-toxic face paints.
Make sure oversized hats, helmets, or headpieces won't interfere with their vision.
See if neighbors will be home while it's still light out, and visit houses then if they're ready for trick-or-treaters.
Give your child a flashlight with fresh batteries.
Tell your child to go only to homes with outside lights on.
Have your child wait until you've inspected his/her treats before they eat them.
Discard anything slightly or not completely wrapped.
If your child is allergic to nuts, check all treats carefully before he/she digs in.
Kids under four shouldn't have popcorn or hard candy -- both are choking hazards.
