Halloween has always been a fun and exciting time of year. From costumes to candy, Halloween is a fun-filled time. But it can pose danger to young children

For a trick-free treat, follow The List Magazines FIVE tips to help keep you and your children safe this Halloween!


Use flashlights, glow sticks, or reflective tape to make sure you can be seen at night.


Never eat candy that has been opened or treats that are not covered or wrapped.


Candy can be especially dangerous for dogs! Keep treats in a high place away from your excited pups!


Try using a lemon zester, vegetable peeler, or even melon baller to decorate and carve your pumpkin. These can be much safer alternatives than a filet or paring knife.


Only go to homes with a porch light on, and always travel in pairs or groups!
