Have an adult go with you when you go trick or treating.
Wear light colored clothing/costumes.
Take a flashlight with you and use it.
If you wear a mask with your costume, make sure it doesn't hinder your vision.
Stay in neighborhoods that you are familiar with.
Do not eat candies that are unwrapped.
Don't eat all of your candy in one day! A few pieces a day will suffice.
