Halloween Safety Tips
Halloween is such a fun time for our kids; I remember my son running here and there (with me behind him, of course), talking to the neighbors, meeting friends, loving all the candy (which we monitored). It was at the time when razor blades had started appearing in apples. So it can be scary too and IMO it gets a little scarier each year. Here are some smart ideas to ensure a Happy Halloween for all.
Always look for the Flame Retardant label when purchasing costumes. Avoid costumes with filmy materials or wings or long sleeves.
Use reflective tape to decorate or trim your child’s costume/clothing; trim that will glow in a car’s headlights. Bags or sacks should also have reflective trim. Reflective tape can be found in hardware and sporting goods stores.
Children should also carry flashlights to be able to see hazards in front of them.
Apply a mask with cosmetics rather than using a facemask. The facemask can obscure vision and/or restrict breathing. If you choose to use a mask, make sure it fits properly in order to allow them full vision.
Costumes should not be so long that the child is tripping over the hem.
Have them wear sturdy shoes that fit well. High heels are not a good idea.
Hats and scarfs should be tied properly so that they don’t become a vision blocker.
Swords, knifes, and other weapons should be of soft and flexible material.
Children should never enter a home or apartment unless an adult accompanies them.
Stay away from candlelit pumpkins on a porch; costumes can easily ignite.
Warn children not to eat any treats until you have a chance to look them over. Check all edibles in the bag that your child brings home. Report anything suspicious found in there to your local Sheriff/Police.
These are a few ways for everyone in the family to have a Happy Halloween.
Be safe out there.
