6 Tips For Trick Or Treating With Little Ones
Halloween is a fun holiday for kids of all ages. What kid isn’t going to love dressing up as their favorite superhero or princess and parading around neighborhoods collecting barrels of candy? While your feet may hate you in the morning, Halloween can be a lot of fun for parents too. Two hours of watching your little ones (looking adorable of course) smiling, laughing and bolting from door to door is a great way to remind yourself that all the stress and sleepless nights are worth it!
Unfortunately, with so many kids and people roaming the streets, Halloween festivities can be a breeding ground for dangerous situations too. Before you head out for an evening of begging and laughing, here are few things you can do to make sure your little ones stay safe on All Hallows Eve:
1. Choose Non-Flammable Costumes
Whether you purchase costumes or make your own, look for material that is flame retardant. Additionally, ensure that the costume fits well, so that you can reduce the chance of your little one’s costume catching on fire when they pass by a candle-lit pumpkin. Make sure you choose age appropriate costumes as well. Hem dresses and pants to avoid tripping hazards, and make sure small pieces or beading on costumes cannot be removed and eaten by youngsters.
