Trick or Treat Tips for Home Owners

Haunted House


Halloween is a great time for kids and you can keep it that way by following a few of our tips.


  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 in your pumpkin so that nothing bursts into flames, including a kid’s costume. Consider using a battery 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 another room and away from the door.
  6. If you’re going to give candy, give only store bought wrapped items such as chocolate bars, chips, etc. Loose candy will be thrown out by the parents.
  7. Alternative 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 everyone can enjoy it without it being trampled.
  9. Halloween candy is magically calorie and fat free on October 31st so feel free to use the “one for you, one for me” rule.
