Tips to Power a Fun and Spooktacular Holiday

Halloween can be a scream. But, it’s important to take safety precautions so children have a fun and safe Halloween. Rayovac flashlights and batteries have the powerful and reliable light you need for Halloween’s fright night. Keep your “little monsters” safe with these fiendishly simple trick-or-treating tips:

All Dressed Up Don’t let your princess, ghost or superhero leave the house without a flashlight, a must-have Halloween costume accessory. The Rayovac Brilliant Solutions LED flashlight will illuminate sidewalks, porches and more so trick-or-treaters don’t trip and hurt themselves. Make sure flashlights have fresh batteries and that adults in the group carry one as well. To further illuminate decked-out children, consider adding reflective tape to treat bags and costumes. Additionally, ensure costumes are flame resistant and fit children properly – trim the length if necessary to avoid tripping.

Fire-Free Halloween
Halloween décor doesn’t seem complete without spooky, flickering flames. Fear not, with a few tricks of the trade you can haunt your house without the hazards of real candles. Stock up on Rayovac batteries and flashlights so you can keep these “boo-tiful” decorating ideas burning:

Create a Flash-O-Lantern

  • Avoid dangerous flames by simply lighting up your carved pumpkin with a flashlight. Place a compact Rayovac Value Bright or Brilliant Solutions flashlight (2AA or 2AAA sized) inside the base of the pumpkin to achieve the ghostly glow. These long lasting flashlights are only $5 and are available at major retailers across the country. Flameless Flicker
  • Battery-operated flameless candles in luminaries along your walkway welcome trick-or-treaters and won’t flicker out with wind.
  • Illuminate windows with candles of the flameless variety without the fear of curtains or blinds getting caught in the flame.

Halloween is fun for kids of all ages. With a little preparation it can be a thrill for everyone!
