Halloween Costume Safety

Halloween is only 16 days away! Are you ready? Are your children getting excited about their costumes? You don’t want anything to happen to your little trick or treaters so make sure their costumes fit them correctly so they don’t create a hazard for them.

Here is another excerpt from my new eBook, “How To Have A Fun, Safe, And Decluttered Halloween”.


“If you child is going to wear a mask, hat, or scarf you want to make sure their vision isn’t obstructed in anyway. Hats and scarves can slip down over their eyes if not tied on securely or fit properly. Use bobby pins if necessary to make sure this doesn’t happen. If their vision is obstructed they can trip over shrubs, decorations, or even come too close to a lit candle on a porch or sidewalk. If they are wearing a mask make sure the eye holes are big enough so they see clearly. Be sure to check their peripheral vision with the mask on by having them keep their head straight while you walk around them. If they can see clearly to the side, the ground, and above (tree branches, low hanging decorations, etc) without moving their head too much then it should be okay. Children tend to look towards the front door without paying much attention to what’s around them on the way there.”

There are a lot more tips on safety in this eBook.
