- Candy Options– It’s important to keep in mind food allergies as you pick out your candy selection. Try to pick a variety of candy options, both peanut-free and non for kids to choose from.
- Candles– While it can be a beautiful sight to see luminaries or your pumpkins all aglow, it creates a hazard for kids walking up and down your driveway. Eliminate the fire hazard altogether by choosing flameless candle options to light the night.
- Lights- Keeping your driveway and path to your front door well lit so kids can see where they are walking/running towards.
- Pets– If possible, keep pets away from the door on Halloween night. Pets typically get excited when the doorbell rings and can accidentally knock over little children.
- Clear Pathways– Make sure the walkways are clear and free of hazards for both kids and parents walking up to front doors.
The Sue Greer Team hopes everyone has a spooky & great Halloween!
