Giveaway: FedEx & Safe Kids Halloween Safety Tips and Trick-or-Treat Bags CLOSED

During Halloween we all know that kids enjoy trick-or-treating, but did you also know that "twice as many children are likely to be killed by vehicles on Halloween night than any other throughout the year"?!

To help keep kids safe on Halloween, FedEx and Safe Kids have teamed to educate children, their parents and even motorists about safe behaviors and give out some safe “gear” to help kids be seen on Halloween night!

Safe Kids Gear

Safe Kids and FedEx volunteers are providing kids with reflective materials to promote visibility. These safe trick-or-treat bags have some cool tools to help kids be seen, such as a flashlight and reflective tags and stickers that kids can add to their costumes, as well as a safety tip sheet. The bags themselves are reflective and perfect for collecting goodies!

Now that you have safety gear for kids, keep safe while trick-or-treating with these Safe Kids and FedEx Halloween Safety Tips:
  • Cross the street safely at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross. Walk, don’t run, across the street.
  • Walk on sidewalks or paths. If there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic as far to the left as possible. Children should walk on direct routes with the fewest street crossings.
  • Slow down and stay alert - watch out for cars that are turning or backing up and never dart out into the street or cross in between parked cars.
  • Costumes can be both creative and safe. Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors. Masks can obstruct a child's vision, so choose non-toxic face paint and make-up whenever possible instead. Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights in order to see better, as well as be seen by drivers.

Scary Stats – Did you know that only a third of parents talk to their children every year about Halloween safety? Find out more in this research report from Safe Kids and sponsored by FedEx, or check out this infographic that shares the key study findings and tips.
