The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons offers the following suggestions to minimize the risk of fractures on Halloween:
*Make sure that costumes fit propertly. Children may trip on costumes that are too long.
*Make sure that masks do not block children's vision and that they can clearly see where they are walking, especially at night.
*Encourage children to wear sturdy, slip-resistant shoes to minimize the change of falling.
*Encourage children to walk on sidewalks and not to cut across yards where they may trip.
