Halloween Hygiene: Safety Tips for Trick-or-Treaters
by Local Grit LLC on Oct 24, 2021
If trick-or-treating is on the schedule for this year’s halloween celebration, make sure candy is the only thing your little ones are bringing back into the house- no germs allowed!
OLIKA’s Safety Tips for Halloween:
Keep Your Distance
When your little ones reach the doorstep, teach them to take a step back and keep some space between themselves and their neighbor. Not only is this a good practice to help avoid a burst of germs, but it can also help avoid any close calls with eager pets.
Clip a cute, orange OLIKA keychain hand sanitizer onto their bags to help them stay sanitized and festive. OLIKA Hydrating Hand Sanitizers are sold in sets, so you can share with the whole neighborhood.
Masks have always been associated with Halloween so designing a costume with a fun face covering is easy to do. Skeleton, Ninja, Robot, Oh My!
No Contact Treats
To limit contact with your own visitors, leave a caldron of treats outside of your door and watch as the pieces dwindle! You can stay comfortable on your couch while shy children and cautious parents alike will be thankful you thought ahead.
Stick Together + Have a Plan
If you’re keeping track of the whole crew, use a buddy system to make sure no one gets left behind between houses. If your kiddos are old enough to go off trick-or-treating on their own, make sure you have a set plan of where and when to meet at the end of the night.
Take 5 minutes to make sure their treats are free from any known allergens and throw out any candy that's unwrapped, homemade, or has a torn wrapper, just to be on the safe side!
