Easy Wolf Halloween Safety Tips!!

October 18, 2016

Hey WOLFPACK, let's be SAFE THIS HALLOWEEN! I found some easy tips to use this year!

 

WOLFTASTIC HALLOWEEN SAFETY TIPS

WOLFPUPS:

Carry a flashlight

Walk, don't run

Stay on the sidewalks in your area

Obey traffic signals, always never skip this step.

Stay in your neighborhood

Don't cut across yards or driveways, you never know what could be lurking in those areas

Wear a watch you can read in the dark

Make sure costumes that don't drag on the ground, you don't want to trip

Shoes should fit (even if they don't go with your costume)

Avoid wearing masks while walking from house to house

Carry only flexible knives, swords or other props in other words FAKE STUFF

(If no sidewalk) walk on the left side of the road facing traffic, learned that from a local police officer growing up

Wear clothing with reflective markings or tape, so you can be seen!

Approach only houses that are lit, avoid ones that are not

Stay away from and don't pet animals you don't know, just in case you dont want little ones to get bit by accident

 

 

Parents:

Make your child eat dinner before rolling out for the fun

Children should carry smart phones so they can call home if needed

Ideally, young children of any age should be accompanied by an adult, plus adults can eat half the candy

If your children go on their own, be sure they wear a watch, preferably one that can be read in the dark

Older kids should know where to reach you and when to be home

You should know where they're going at all times

Although tampering is rare, tell children to bring the candy home to be inspected before consuming anything, good idea in all cases

Look at the wrapping carefully and toss out anything that looks suspect, never accept candy that is not safley wrapped

 

 

Homeowners:

Make sure your yard is clear of such things as ladders, hoses, dog leashes and flower pots that can trip the young kiddos

Pets get frightened on Halloween. Put them up to protect them from cars or inadvertently bitting a trick-or-treater, never allow them to greet the kids

Battery powered jack o'lantern candles are preferable to a real flame, wont start a fire that way

If you do use candles, place the pumpkin well away from where trick-or-treaters will be walking or standing

Make sure outside decorations won't be blown into a flaming candle, to prevent accidents

Healthy food alternatives for trick-or-treaters include packages of low-fat crackers with cheese or peanut butter filling, single-serve boxes of cereal, packaged fruit rolls, mini boxes of raisins and single-serve packets of low-fat popcorn that can be microwaved later

Non-food treats: plastic rings, pencils, stickers, erasers, coins (howver they won't like this option) :)
