Whether you are trick or treating this weekend… or on Halloween itself, it’s always smart to play it safe.
Here are 7 Top Tips for this ghoulish holiday!
First focus on the costume. Make sure all costumes, masks and shoes are well fitting. You do not want anyone to trip while they are travelling from house to house. If the costume includes fake swords or knives make sure they are short, soft, and flexible. It’s also smart to add a tiny reflective tape to costumes or bags to help drivers see every last trick or treater. If makeup is part of your plan, test a small patch to make sure it doesn’t irritate the skin. The same goes for the eyes, watch irritating makeup and you may want to forego those fancy contact lenses. According to the Food and Drug Administration, they can be risky and may cause eye problems. Once you are out and about, be sure to bring a flashlight to light your way to all those treats. Always walk, do not run from house to house. And finally, wait until you get home to check out all that candy.
Mom and Dad should give the goodies a “once over” to make sure everything is safe to eat.
