Candy

Receiving candy on Halloween is sometimes a child’s favorite part. Many parents check over their kid’s candy before allowing them to eat it to make sure nothing is open or looks suspicious. This Halloween it is even more important to not let your kids eat any of the candy while they are out and about. A helpful tip/idea may be to carry hand sanitizer with you for your kids to clean their hands in between houses.¬† Once you arrive back home, everyone needs to wash their hands for at least 20 seconds with antibacterial soap and water. After washing your hands, inspect the candy and wipe any wrappers down before giving to your kids.
