Let’s Be Honest – Adults Like Halloween Candy Too
With the nighttime holiday right around the corner, chances are you’ve already begun cutting, sewing, and measuring all the pieces that will make a great DIY Halloween costume for your little ones. Maybe you’ve succumbed to buying that ridiculous Superman costume with the blow up muscles at the store. Either way, you’re preparing for a fun night of trick-or-treating.
Between the costume making, pumpkin patch visiting, and endless searches for good sales on candy, it becomes easy to overlook the little things that make for a safe trick-or-treating experience.
Whether you’ll be walking hand in hand with small children, or letting the older kids go out on their own, it’s important to make sure they can find their way through the dark. After all, pumpkins aren’t known for being the best source of reliable light, especially on a windy night. Consider the following safety tips before hustling and bustling out the door before all the king-size candy bars have been claimed (you know the one house that does this).
- Make sure you have a flashlight or two that are bright and reliable. If you check the tool box and the old light is worn out, check out this lightweight lantern!
- If possible, give a flashlight to your kids that comes with a wrist strap. This easy to carry flashlight will ensure you get it back when the kids come home with their coveted prize!
- Make sure you’ve got fresh batteries for your candy-collecting party. Nothing could be worse than losing your light just when you start going down the street with no street lamps! To stock up, check out our trusted Duracell distributor.
When the ghouls and goblins have done their mischief and are back home sorting their candy, you’ll be glad you had all the tools to make sure no one spent the night crying with a skinned knee because they didn’t see a curb or pothole.
Keep on prepping those costumes and carving those pumpkins! You got this! Just don’t forget to reward yourself with some of the Halloween loot!
