Barb, author of Great Family Gadgets, suggested this Halloween safety tip:
I just came up with (what I think is) a great Halloween hack: Use Sylvania DOT-it lights as headlamps for the kids – stronger light than a flashlight and the LEDs don't get hot. The MSR is $9.99, but they're cheaper at Amazon. And the light can be used in or around the home later because it can be "stuck" elsewhere.
