Top Tips For Trick Or Treating With Children
Trick or treating is an absolute necessity this Halloween!
It is a customary practise that originates from the 1950s which involves children across the world dressing up in ghostly costumes and travelling from house to house in the neighbourhood, asking for sweets and candy.
Trick or treating is best taken place at night-time when it is dark; so many kids walk the streets with their parents for safety. But what are the top tips to having fun and being out of harm’s way this Halloween?
First and foremost, it is best for adults to accompany young children. Many homeowners can be less enthusiastic about opening their front doors and celebrating the spooky time of year; so chaperoning little ones is always the soundest.
Ulster Weavers also recommend families to;
- Wrap up warm and carry flashlights.
- Walk on the pavement and look both ways when crossing the road.
- When being mischievous on unsuspected houses, avoid hiding behind cars.
- Try not to walk across people’s gardens or driveways.
- When homeowners open the door, say thank you after being given the treats and put them in your sturdy canvas bags. Remain polite even if they don’t give you anything.
- Only approach houses that have lights on and bring the candy home to be checked by parents before eating any.
- Never go inside a stranger’s house and be wary of loose animals.
