Halloween is coming and we are starting to get prepared for trick or treaters. We live in a large neighborhood so we will also be doing trick or treating ourselves. It’s important to us that our chilren are safe and that’s why we have teamed up with Energizer this Halloween to share a few important safety tips. We also wanted to share the fun and there’s nothing better than a “You’ve Been Spooked” tradition to start in our neighborhood!
Halloween Safety Tips –
- Plan a trick-or-treat route ahead of time. Create a route that avoids major intersections, but does have safe crosswalks and sidewalks. If there are no sidewalks, be sure to walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. Always look both ways before crossing any street.
- Keep a portable light on hand (or head). As the sun sets, you don’t want to be caught in the dark. Energizer portable lights ensure you’re ready to hit the streets on Halloween night:
o Energizer® LED 2 in 1 light Fusion Flashlights – Compact and versatile, Energizer Light Fusion Technology products are convenient, water resistant and provide impressively bright long lasting light—easily seen by drivers and other pedestrians.
o Headlights – Powerful Energizer LED headlights are lightweight and convenient – perfect for keeping hands free. That way, you may hold your child’s hand, while their other clutches the ever-important candy container. The headlight can even add to or be a part of a costume!
- Walk, don’t run. Take your time and walk; don’t run from house to house on Halloween night. Use Energizer portable lights to be aware of decorations or other obstructions in yard and on sidewalks to avoid trips and falls.
- Be selective. Only visit well-lit houses and avoid stopping at dark houses. Remind your children to stay in groups and never accept rides from strangers or enter homes without a parent or guardian.
We have already picked up some of our favorite Energizer products including extra Energizer Max Batteries to help keep our lights going all night.
To share in the Halloween spirit we wanted to share the power and inspire our neighborhood to have a safe and Happy Halloween! You can download your own we got spooked sign and spooked halloween letter and start some fun in your neighborhood!
To celebrate in all the spooky fun we started with two of our neighbors. Our next door neighbors don’t have any children but love their pets so we made sure their pets got included in the spooky surprise. A fun Halloween banner, kitchen towels and Energizer products will help them get a fun start to the spooky season.
We also shared the surprise with another neighbor and it was really fun just getting into the season. It’s simple and kind gestures towards our neighbors that create a healthier and safer neighborhood for us all.
The most important thing is making sure we stay safe this Halloween and we hope to inspire our neighborhood to have a safe and spooky Halloween season!
