Trick-or-Treating Safety Tips

Can you believe it’s almost time to go trick-or-treating again? We hope you have found a costume idea and maybe you’ve already made it! We can’t wait to see what everyone brings to our Halloween parties this year! Speaking of which, we’ll be open on Halloween until 9pm this year and hope to see you there. Just like we stress safety at Miracle Skate, our team wanted to offer a few Halloween safety tips for your night of trick-or-treating.

Trick-or-treating safety tips

Lose the Mask

While masks can complete a costume, they’re also known to hinder your children’s vision. It’s already going to be dark out, do try to see if facepaint can stand in in place of a mask. That said, if a mask is a necessity, don’t ruin your child’s night, but keep an extra close watch as they walk door to door.

Flexible Props

Plastic swords, lightsabers, and shields all look great, but they’re also more likely to get caught on a bush or trip you up on a sidewalk. Try looking for props that are made of flexible material and still look the part.

Plan a Route

Last but not least, before you and your kids hit the neighborhood, print out a map and highlight the route you’re going to take. This way you can avoid any busy intersection and get an idea for how long you’ll be out. (So you can plan to be back and head to Miracle Skate!)
