Be Seen on Halloween

Costumes. Candy. Spooky stories. Ghoulish games. These are some of the many reasons kids look forward to Halloween every year. And as adults, we look forward to seeing our kids adorably dressed up as witches and wizards, vampires and zombies, fairies and superheroes – and anything else they can imagine.

Safe Kids and FedEx are teaming up again to help families stay safe on the spookiest night of the year. Here are some quick tips to share with your little goblins before Halloween night arrives.

Be Safe, Be Seen

As the sun sets and the trick-or-treating begins, there’s one easy thing parents can do to make sure the night is more fun and less fright: Be Seen on Halloween.

Make it easier for drivers to see your kids, as they dart from house to house collecting candy in the dark. Using items that can be found online, at party stores, sporting good stores or mass retailers, you can easily add visibility to your child’s costume. Here are some ideas:

  • Flashlights
  • Glow sticks
  • Reflective wristbands or tape

Learn more about why this is important.

Share Your Costume Creativity on Instagram and #BeSeenOnHalloween

We want to see the creative ways you’ve incorporated visibility into your child’s costume! Share a photo of your kids’ flashing, glowing or reflecting costume to show us how you’re keeping them safe this Halloween, and you will be entered for a chance to receive a $50 Amazon gift card.

How to enter:

  • Follow @safekidsworldwide on Instagram.
  • Take a photo of your kid in costume, showing off whatever you’ve used to make them more visible on Halloween.
  • Share your photo on Instagram, using the hashtag #BeSeenOnHalloween.

We will select three photos in a random drawing, on or before November 5, 2014. These submissions will be reposted by @safekidsworldwide on Instagram, and tagged to notify the lucky recipients of the $50 Amazon gift cards.
