  • Halloween safety guide - Halloween safety tips for children

    Children love Halloween! They get to dress up and get free candy. What a perfect holiday!

    Give your children some precious Halloween memories that they’ll have for life. Trick or Treating isn’t what it used to be.

    It’s not as safe to let children walk the streets alone. Send a responsible adult or older teenager with them. Have a pumpkin carving party for your children and their friends a couple nights before Halloween. They’ll enjoy looking at their creations for a few days before the pumpkins need to be thrown out.
