Do you have your Halloween costume all ready to go? This year I’ve considered going as a duck because it has been non-stop rain here in Vancouver. But wearing a beak all night does not delight me so I’ll probably end up with something simpler .. like a unicorn ninja.
Whatever costume you (or your kids) decide to wear, if you’re going out trick-or-treating, you’ll want to follow some general principles for safety:
- Makeup is safer than wearing a mask.
- Light colours are better than dark – think more Rey and less Kylo Ren.
- Make sure your costume fits well and isn’t a tripping hazard.
Once you’ve got your costume ready to go, you’ll want to make sure you and your kids are safe when you head down the block. Or, if you’re the one staying home to pass out treats to local ghosts and goblins, you’ll want to be sure your property is safe. Check out our tips for staying safe on the street and for creating a safe trick-or-treating experience.
