Trick-or-treating is an event kids look forward to all year long. Gathering with friends, filling up their candy bags and gaining a little independence is something every kid enjoys. However, we always want to ensure our kids are as safe as possible on this mischievous holiday, so using some tech-friendly devices and apps helps make this possible on Allhallows Eve.
Cygolite Hotshot Pro 150 Rear Brake Lights
If the thought of your child riding a bike on Halloween makes you cringe, then REI has the answer for you and your little one with the Cygolite Hotshot Pro 150 Rear Brake Light that clips right onto the back of the bike. These brake lights will even allow children to stand out during the day, as they offer 150-lumen flashes and six striking modes to choose from. They last up to 210 hours, which is plenty of time for kids to hit all of their favorite blocks when trick-or-treating. $49.95.
One of the most horrifying things about Halloween can be trying to figure out where your child is at all moments of the evening. That’s where Glympse comes into the equation, as it allows users to send their location to friends and family, letting them know they are safe or on their way. Kids can easily communicate with their parents, letting them know what streets they are on and when they are heading home after the night is over. If kids get lost, parents can easily find their location thanks to this app. Free.
During Halloween, your kids might be too busy to check in and will easily forget to pick up the phone while you are sending them “Is everything OK?” text messages. Life360 is an app that boasts a private map allowing parents to track where their kids are venturing off to without kids checking in with their location. Determine preapproved routes so children know where they are allowed to go, and you can check in on their trick-or-treating adventure with ease. There is also an emergency signal kids can send to their parents in case they need their assistance. Free.
