Tips for a safe Halloween

Halloween is such an exciting night of the year and a particularly special treat for young children. "Try to avoid masks that may completely obstruct your child's vision", said Dr. Tunis. They remind drivers to be extra careful on Halloween night.

· Use a glow stick instead of a candle in the jack-o-lantern to avoid a fire hazard.

Limit the amount of candy a child can eat in one sitting.

Officials with the Illinois State Police remind motorists and parents that children in many communities will be trick-or-treating during the upcoming Halloween weekend and on Halloween night. Put electronic devices down, keep heads up and walk, don't run. If there aren't any, walk facing traffic. Walk on sidewalks and not in middle of the street. Pedestrians should keep an eye out for cars that are backing up or turning.

Add some reflective tape to the costumes and trick-or-treat bags. Kids should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and should trick or treat in groups if they aren't going to be with an adult. "Never leave a candle burning unattended".

Always test make-up in a small area first in case skin irritation may occur.

"Being able to draw on a costume, choosing unique hats or wigs".

If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Consider placing signs outside your home letting drivers know that children will be visiting your house.

Do not approach homes that have all lights turned off and respect private property.
