Why injury? It's this simple: more children die from injuries every year than from the next three leading causes of death combined. Nobody knows this because no one is talking about it. In the U.S., one child dies every hour from an injury that could have been prevented. Around the world, a child dies every 30 seconds as the result of an injury. You don’t need to have a child to know that we can do better.

 

Three Tips for a Safer Trick-or-Treat

End Injury

Picking out Halloween costumes is something many kids gets excited about. From the minute costumes show up on store shelves, there are constant conversations and changing ideas about what a child will dress up as. Whether you’re buying a child’s costume or making one, keep a few things in mind.

FACE IT: Masks can be incredibly cool, but have you tried one on lately? No one can really see out of them. Stick with face paint or a fun wig rather than a mask.

KEEP IT SHORT: Long dresses or robes can make for pretty costumes, but kids are always tripping over them. Kids have enough trouble walking in the dark – they shouldn’t have to carry their candy bag and half their costume at the same time. Keep costumes above your child’s feet so they can trick-or-treat without tripping.

LET ‘EM SHINE: Trick-or-treat night can be chaotic. There’s homework, dinner, and getting kids into their costumes.  It’s chaotic for traffic too, especially when it starts to get dark. Help your child stand out by choosing a costume that’s bright or by adding some reflective tape.
