Are you excited about Halloween? I am, too! I love looking at our neighbours’ creepy decorations and checking out all the amazing costumes as I take my kids from one home to the next. But we’ll remember to play it safe as we go. Here are our trick-or-treating safety tips:
- Make sure your costume isn’t too long so you don’t trip.
- Wear face paint instead of a mask to see better.
- Wear reflective tape or carry a flashlight so you’re easy to see in the dark.
- Only cross the street with a grown-up.
- Keep your costume away from lit candles or pumpkins.
- Don’t enter a neighbour’s house unless a parent says it’s okay.
- Ask an adult to check your candy for holes or missing wrappers.
After we come home, we’re going to have a special Halloween-style story time before we settle in for a night of sugar-coated dreams. We’re going to check out a book called Creepy Carrots written by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Peter Brown. It’s about a rabbit who’s crazy about carrots — until they start following him home! (Or do they?) Find out when you read this funny book.
And don’t forget to send a picture of you in your Halloween costume to email@example.com. I’ll post some here at Chirp Family Fun. Have a spook-tacular Halloween, everyone!
