Trick-or-treating Rules


On Halloween, lots of you will be heading out on the streets to trick or treat. We've put together some tips to help you enjoy trick or treating, while staying safe.


  • Make sure a responsible adult or guardian goes with you - it could be an older brother or sister if they're over 16.
  • Plan your route before you leave the house and make sure someone else knows where you are going.
  • Carry a torch and wear reflective or light-coloured clothing so you can be seen. Perhaps incorporate this into your spooky costume?
  • Stay close to home and if possible only visit the houses of people you know.
  • NEVER enter a stranger's home.
  • Stay on pavements and check carefully before crossing a road - especially if there's a large group of you.
  • Throw away any treats or sweets that have been opened or unwrapped.
  • If you are wearing a mask, make sure that you can see clearly out of it.
  • Make sure your costume is warm - it is almost November!
