Halloween Safety Tips

*Have kids use glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and to be seen by drivers.

*Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, remind them to stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups.

*When selecting a costume make sure it is the right size to prevent trips and falls.

*Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors.

*Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child's vision.

*Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. Teach kids to never dart out into street or cross between parked cars. Always walk on sidewalks/paths. If no sidewalks, walk facing traffic.

*Please avoid wearing over-sized shoes to help prevent tripping and falling. Also, light up shoes/reflective tape are practical and noticeable on a dark Halloween night.

*Do not consume candy until inspected by an adult.

Dr. Mindy's Tips:
  • Of the 206 bones in the adult human body – How many are in one human adult foot?

  • Seven tarsal bones: talus, calcaneus, cuniforms I, II, & III, cuboid, and navicular.
    Five metatarsals I-IV,The great toe has two phalanges,
    The other four toes have three each (twelve).
    So that's 7+5+2+12=26 total bones in the foot.
    BUT!!! If you guessed 28 you are still correct.
    (You must have included the sesamoid bones at the base of the big toe)

  • 52 (or 56) bones in both feet combined!
    That’s just 25% of ALL the bones in your entire body. No wonder foot care is so important!
