KANSAS CITY, Mo. - As kids hit the street for some Halloween trick-or-treating, police departments across the metro are asking parents to make sure their kids' costumes are easily visible in the dark.
Flashlight: It's recommended that each child use a flashlight. It can help kids see where they're going as well as make them more visible to passing the cars.
Reflective tape: For less than $10, parents can pick-up some reflective tape and add it to their kids' costumes. This can be especially useful for kids wearing a dark poncho or trash bag to keep themselves dry.
Glow sticks: If the reflective tape doesn't meet your aesthetic requirements, glow sticks can be a great way to illuminate the costume without taking away from its overall look. A package of 10 will cost you about $3.
Glow-in-the-dark paint: If you looking for a more creative way to light-up your costume, a can of glow-in-the-dark spray paint will cost about $5. This can be a good fix for costumes accessories, however, most paints only show up when it is completely dark.
