  • Never trick-or-treat alone. Have at least two friends go with you.
  • Plan your entire route and make sure your family knows what it is.
  • Carry a bright flashlight to illuminate sidewalks, steps and paths. Use new flashlight batteries and check it before you leave the house.
  • Chemical glow light sticks can be used along with flashlights.
  • Always WALK, do not run.
  • Stay on sidewalks. If there is not a sidewalk, walk on the left side of the road facing traffic. Walk single file, facing the traffic.
  • Obey traffic signals and only cross at corners.
  • Don’t assume you have the right of way.
  • Because one car stops, it doesn’t mean others will!
  • Stay in familiar neighborhoods.
  • Don’t cut across yards or driveways.
  • Wear a watch you can read in the dark. Set the watch alarm if you have time limit for trick-or-treating.
  • Avoid wearing masks while walking from house to house.
  • Carry only flexible knives, swords or other props. Avoid pointed props such as spears, or wands that endanger other children’s eyes.
  • Wear clothing with reflective markings or tape.
  • Make sure your costume doesn’t drag on the ground or you might trip on it.
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes, and make sure they should fit properly.
  • Visit houses that have lights on, especially houses with Halloween decorations.
  • Stay away from animals you don’t know.
  • Do not enter homes or apartments without adult supervision.
  • Accept treats only in the doorway. Never go inside a house.
  • Always carry a spare Halloween bag just in case yours breaks.
  • Take a cell phone with you if possible.
  • Always be polite and don’t forget to say “Trick-or-Treat” and “Thank You”!
