Wednesday, October 23, 2013 The Montmorency County Tribune 3 Halloween tips for parents and homeowners What To Do With The Kids is not only the website that parents go to when they want to know what to do with their kids, but also a popular place to visit when planning your Halloween festivities. The fun can be found at www.whattodowiththekids.com. The Halloween collection includes tips on how to create a haunted house, throwa spooktacular Hallow- een party featuring party invitations and Halloween crafts to entertain the kids. The kids can have their faces painted easily with a simple yet cre- ative design and your jack-o-lantern will be the envy of the neighborhood when using one of our unique pump- kin stencils. We have also developed two sepa- rate trick or treat tip sheets for par- ents taking their kids out and for the homeowners who hand out the goodies. Here are a few tips that will hope- fully prepare parents for make the evening fun for everyone. 1.Encourage the kids to use facial make up instead of a mask. 2.Spend the extra dollar and pur- chase quality make-up. You don't want your kid to have that same look weeks later. 3.If possible, design the costume to accommodate a sweater or even a jacket underneath depending on the weather. 4.Make sure that all costumes and accessories are flame resistant. 5.Keep in mind how much walking they'll be doing for their age. You don't want to have to carry your little ghoul home. 6.Carry extra bags to dump candy in so the kids don't get overly tired. 7.If you have more than one kid to supervise, try bringing a wagon or cart to unload the candy in as they go door to door. 8.If you're taking other kids with you, set out the rules before you leave and make sure they understand. 9.Instruct the kids to stay with you and offthe lawns and out of the gar- dens. 10.Remind the kids to say thank you, even if they get crappy candy. 11.Be prepared to carry their props after a while. 12.Inspect all candy when you get home. Throw away homemade, un- wrapped or open candy. 13.Let them have one piece of wrapped candy while on the walk as a treat/break. 14.Bring a flashlight and give them glow sticks to wear. 15.Don't let them walk in the middle of the streets. Cars will still travel on roads Oct. 31st. 16.If the front light is out but they have Halloween decorations, there is a good chance that they have no more candy. 17.If the lights are out and don't have any decorations, the people are most likely hiding in the back and have no cagdy to give. 18.Carry a small, portable first aid kit for those little cuts and injuries. 19.Many people bring their dogs with them and dress them up in cos- tumes such as a hot dog or a devil. Instruct the kids to ask the owner if they can pet the animal before they do. There is a good chance that the animal is embarrassed to be in a cos- tume and may want to take it out on a kid. 20.When the kids go to the door, stay close by and watch carefully. 21.Set a strict curfew for older kids that go out on their own. 22.Kids are never to go into the house unless YOU know them. 23.If you have to drive, slow down more than usual. 24.Give the kids a snack before they go out. They won't complain about being hungry and want to eat the candy. 25.Take half the candy and place it in the freezer for use in the summer. Here are a few tips for homeowners on Halloween: 1. Keep the path to your door clear of all obstacles and well lit. 2. Don't terrorize the kids. It's all about fun and not making them wet their pants. 3. Be extremely careful with the candle inyour pumpkin so that noth- ing bursts into flames, including a kid's costume. Consider using a bat- tery powered light or glow sticks. 4. Use flashlights, glow sticks or electric lights with the power cord safe and secured. 5. If you have a dog, keep it in an- other room and away from the door. 6. If you're going to give candy, give only store bought and wrapped items such as chocolate bars, chips, etc. Loose candy will be thrown out by the parents. 7. Altemative giving can include pencils, erasers or stickers with a Halloween theme. 8. If you've spent a lot of time on your Halloween display, you may want to consider putting some sort of SAFE fencing around it so that ev- eryone can enjoy it without it being trampled. 9. Halloween candy is magically calorie and fat free on Oct. 31 st so feel free to use the "one for you, one for me" rule. 10. Check out our website for more tips and special effects.
