Costumes plus trick-or-treating equals a whole lot of fun for kids of all ages. Arguably one of the best holidays for children, Halloween requires vigilance from parents and caregivers.

Every year, IPC receives hundreds of calls to our helpline about potential poisoning from Halloween-related items, including glow sticks and dry ice. IPC is here to help with tips to protect you and the children in your life from harm.
