Have a Happy (and Safe) Halloween!
While getting some tasty treats is important on Halloween, safety is critical to make the night a fun evening for all the little goblins and fairy princesses.
The Cheltenham Township Police Department put out a notice today detailing several things for parents to keep in mind when their little ones go out tonight.
A few of the key safety points:
Check your kids' candy for chocking hazards like gum and hard candies.
Face paint is safer than masks.
Stay visible with a reflective bag.
Always use a crosswalk to cross the street.
Lighter-colored costumes are easier to see in the dark.
Beyond safety tips for children, the Cheltenham Township Police Department also suggested that you fire-proof your pumpkins by lighting them with glow sticks.
