Some Useful Tips On Safe and Joyful Halloween

The Halloween festival is knocking at the door. Both children and their parents are excited to celebrate this festival with much joy and safety. Halloween is a fun time for kids as well as for adults. Even the small preschool children, can enjoy Halloween in their style. But, parents must supervise that their children have a healthy and safe Halloween.

In a preschool in West Covina, CA, parents have been given some safety tips for their little ones for the upcoming Halloween. The caregivers advise that it is a wise decision to choose a light-colored costume for their little ones so that they can be seen at night. Adding reflective tape or glow-in-the-dark tape to the costume and the trick-or-treat bag will make them able to be seen even in the darkness. When you buy a costume for your little one, buy a ‘flame-retardant” costume for them. This material will not burn easily. If you want to make their costume at home, by fire-resistant material for the costume. Wigs and beards should not be used because those things cover their eyes, nose, and mouths. Sometimes masks become very suffocating. So instead of using masks, use color to decorate their faces. But be sure you are using organic colors on their skin. Colored or decorative contact lenses should not be used on the eyes of small preschool-going children. High heel and misfit shoes should be avoided to prevent falls. Besides this, children walk a lot from one home to another and if they do not wear properly fitted shoes, it will create pain in their leg. Check the props your kids carry. Be sure that there is no sharp object that may hurt their tender skin. Do not allow them to wear an oversized dress to prevent any mishap. If your children are quite small, do not allow them to roam alone. They should go to the trick and treat with an adult.

Slightly older children may travel without the supervision of an adult but they must form a group. Traveling alone is neither safe nor an enjoyable thing. Give them tips on proper traffic rules. Tell them to check the traffic signals while crossing the road. Advise them to look left, right, and left again when crossing and keep looking as they cross. Tell them not to concentrate on their cell phone or listen to music in the headphone when they are on road and always use the side path for a walk.

Some safety tips should be followed by the homeowners also because children will come to your house. Remove items from your yard or porch that might trip a child. Keep your outdoor light on. Sweep wet leaves from your steps and driveway. Instead of candles use a flashlight or battery-operated light inside the pumpkin. Some children suffer from food allergy and instead of giving them candy or other sweet food items present them with gifts like pencils, erasers, stickers, etc. Put out a teal-colored pumpkin or posters on the window so that the children come to know that what you are giving them is allergy-friendly and non-food treats. Adult, elder persons drive your car slow and remain alert always in this time because children are on road.
