One thing I am always mindful of on Halloween is safety. We always check each and every piece of candy once we get home. If something is partially unwrapped, not wrapped at all, or just looks suspicious, into the trash it goes!
My oldest son no longer goes trick-or-treating with us. He is in 8th grade, and goes out with his friends in the neighborhood. There are rules, though. He must have a flashlight, and he must be in a group of 4 or more. Also, it's highly preferred that someone in the group has a cell phone in case of an emergency.
It's also important to stay safe while trick-or-treating. After all, there are lots of dangers when venturing out in the dark. We always use glow-sticks or reflective tape to make sure we're visible to motorists. One way we're upping our Halloween safety this year is by choosing light-up shoes from the Stride Rite Halloween Page.
Like I said, my Sophie is a witch. her costume is black and purple with pink accents. These adorable Sugar and Spice Starlit shoes are the perfect complement! I love the feminine detail and hint of glitter. They are also very easy to put on and take off, since there is an alternative closure.
Oh, and if you're looking for shoes that don't have light-up features, Stride Rite has you covered there as well. Seriously, they have tons and tons of great styles for girls and boys.
Xander absolutely loves his Bronco shoes from Stride Rite. He calls them his "Chicago Bears Shoes" since they're blue and orange. Yes, I live in the Cleveland area and am a Chicago fan. We don't announce this at any of the sports bars in the area, since Browns fans can get a little crazy!
Anyway, these shoes are absolutely adorable and very well made. I love the fact that they offer easy velcro closure since it makes putting Xander's shoes on super quick.
Do you have any Halloween Safety tips you'd like to share? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Happy Halloween, and Be Safe!
