Costume Discounters is teaming up with Phoenix Jones to make sure that your Halloween G-L-O-W-S.  This year, we want to be sure that you and your family have a safe and Happy Halloween.  To help you, we’ve created a great and easy way for both kids and adults to remember the most important Halloween Safety Tips and Tricks.

Always Trick or Treat in a group of people. Younger children should always be accompanied by a trusted adult, whether it’s a parent or guardian. Older children should be sure to go out in a group and never be alone. Even when approaching a door or crossing the street, nobody should ever be out on Halloween by his or herself.


Halloween night is dark!  So make sure that your kids stay in well-lit areas.  Walking along sidewalks with street lamps or wearing reflective materials on their costumes will make children easier to see.


Since your kids will be carrying a treat bag, they can easily throw a few extra things into their bag – a flashlight for dark places, a cell phone (for calling home) and/or a watch to keep track of time.  Better to overpack!


Teach your children to be aware of their surroundings.  Plan a trick or treating route out before they go and make sure they stay on sidewalks and in well-lit areas.  Also be sure to remind them to never talk to strangers – Come up with an emergency plan in case they don’t feel safe.


No matter who it’s from – Always check your children’s candy before allowing them to eat it.  Any candy that seems tampered with or is opened should be discarded immediately.  Better safe than sorry!
