Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat Keep in mind these safety suggestions from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission before you start your Halloween planning.

* Be sure the costume fits properly, allowing the child to see through a mask and not trip over a costume. Only buy costumes that are flame resistant or flame-retardant; the fabric will resist burning and will be extinguished quickly.
* For greater visibility, decorate or trim costumes and bags with reflective tape that will glow in the beam of a car's headlights. Reflective tape is usually available in hardware or craft stores.
* Children should carry flashlights to see and be seen.
* Swords, knives and similar costume accessories should be made of soft, flexible material.
* Examine the treats carefully for evidence of tampering before allowing the children to eat the sweet or play with the toys.
* Keep candles and jack-o'-lanterns away from landings and doorsteps where costumes could brush against the flame.
* Remove obstacles from lawns, steps and porches when expecting trick-or-treaters.
