10 Spooktacular Halloween Safety Tips Inspired by Monsters UniversityPilar Clark
Experience the tradition of academic excellence, groundbreaking research, development of the next generation of leadership, and the relentless pursuit of scariness this Halloween with Monsters University — available now on Blu-Ray and DVD.
And while you and your littles carve pumpkins, put the finishing touches on epic costumes, hit classroom parties, and otherwise plan out the ultimate neighborhood trick-or-treating strategy (scary feet keep things moving), don’t forget one very important, albeit less exciting, part of All Hallow’s Eve — safety.
Because seeing a ghost and being a ghost are two entirely different things. (Pretty sure Randall knows, considering he ended up in somebody’s stew. Shudder).

Tip 1: 2 of 11
Tip 2: 3 of 11
Tip 3: 4 of 11
Stick together. Everything is better when you do it with a team. Or your family.
Tip 4: 5 of 11
Wear reflective clothing. If you don't already have eyes that glow in the dark, that is...
Tip 5: 6 of 11
Always have mom, dad, grandparents, or other trusted adults nearby. Because you never know when you'll need a getaway car. Just saying.
Tip 6: 7 of 11
Don't touch things you shouldn't.
Tip 7: 8 of 11
Blend in with your surroundings, because the night is all about getting treats, not falling for tricks.
Tip 8: 9 of 11
Remember that it's okay to be cute. You don't have to be scary! You just have to be fearless.
Tip 9: 10 of 11
Roar like a monster. It's the one night a year when no one minds. And it's a great way to keep from getting lost. Yes, this applies to grown-ups, too.
Tip 10: 11 of 11
Parents, if this is the face you make when you realize you ate most of the Halloween candy before Halloween, relax. You'll be out with your kids for most of the evening anyway.
