Here at KamloopsParents, we have put together a list of safety tips to review with your family so that you can have a memorable and enjoyable evening.
1. Use face paints instead of masks. Masks can easily move and obstruct your child’s view while walking.
2. Make sure your child is wearing a brightly coloured costume or add reflective tape so that they are more visible to motorists.
3. Make sure your child can safely walk in their costume, and it’s not too restrictive or oversized. Also make sure that they are wearing comfortable shoes that are properly fitted (they will regret it after some time walking in them, if not!)
4. Make sure your child goes trick or treating with a parent or guardian, or in a group if they are old enough. Never alone.
