Many of us will be out and about trick-or-treating with our little monsters this year, emerging from the darkness to frighten friends and family alike! But with the nights drawing in, it’s important to think about safety as well as fun.
So, to help you have a frightfully safe Halloween this year, we’ve put together these top tips:
1. Stay Well Lit
It’s important to make sure you’re always visible while you’re trick-or-treating, which is why it’s a good idea to carry torches with you. Reflective stickers are another great idea as they’ll light up in a car’s headlights, warning drivers that they need to watch out for your ghastly group. And for a really spooky but safe touch, our projector torch is ideal. With four eerie designs, it’s ideal for getting the kids to light their way around the neighbourhood while casting freaky shapes on the pavement.
2. Look for Extra-Safe Costumes
When you’re shopping for costumes, be sure to look out for costumes that have been through a rigorous testing process and are flame-resistant. And always choose designs that are the right size for your child, to prevent any tripping hazards from costumes that drag along the floor.
3. Opt for Flameless Lights
When it comes to dressing up, no matter how careful you are with your outfit, naked flames always pose a safety risk – so keep the kids extra safe and check out our LED tealights. They’re a great alternative to a candle in a pumpkin! And for those freakingly fantastic finishing touches, look no further than our unique twists on fairy lights. With pumpkin, spider and ghost designs available, these lights are perfect for lighting up your home to welcome trick-or-treaters and greet your gruesome guests.
