TIPS & TRICKS FROM MAYO CLINIC for a safe evening:

• The brighter the better: Bright colors + attach reflective tape to his or her costume or treat bag.

• Size it right. Loose enough for warm clothing to be worn underneath — but not long enough for tripping.

• Skip the masks. Use nontoxic makeup instead.


• Accompany trick-or-treaters younger than age 12.

• Pin a piece of paper with your child's name, address and phone number inside your child's pocket in case you get separated.

• Make sure someone in the group has a flashlight with fresh batteries.

• Plan a familiar route and set a curfew.

• Review safety rules, including staying with the group, walking only on the sidewalk, approaching only clearly lit homes, and never going inside a home or car for a treat.

• Have your child carry a cellphone.

• Inspect treats before indulging.


• Put away tripping hazards, such as garden hoses, toys and bikes.

• Clear leavesfrom the sidewalk.

• Turn the lights on.

• Control your pets.
