Halloween is one of the most exciting times of the year for children who love to dress up and trick-or-treat. Parents need to take appropriate steps to ensure their child’s costume is safe. Bright colors or reflective materials to include tape, buttons, or tags work well. Kids costumes should also fit well and not drag, which could cause a child to trip and fall. For full-body costumes, check to see if the costume provides for detachable masks or headwear so that the child can take them off from time to time for fresh air. Any masks or headwear should also never obstruct the child’s vision. Therefore, it is important to check the costume for the eyeholes that are large enough for your child to see through. While accessories and props may be fun, anything sharp or pointed should be avoided. For added safety, make sure the costume’s material is fire resistant and any makeup that will be used is non-toxic.
