Here are a few easy Halloween safety tips with toddlers to keep your kids safe during your Halloween celebration without being a helicopter parent. While we can’t always be over watching at every second, the following safety tips will keep the celebration fun and safe for your littles, without the need to over worry:
Keep Away From Pointed Props: For safety of your kids, replace the sharp-pointed princess crowns and plastic swords with its softer versions. Try to craft a plastic or paper foam crown for your little princess. For your little gentleman, make a police badge out of felt and a magic wand by attaching curling ribbon, streaming or glitter-decorated tulle instead of pointed plastic stars. This also makes for a fun filled Halloween event, of crafting your little ones costumes together!
Dress For Safety: When you choose Halloween costumes for your toddlers, cuteness counts, however, not as much as safety. To help keep them away from injuries, make sure that your toddler’s dress is short enough to let him or her navigate easily. Halloween costumes for toddlers should be flame resistant. To make them visible, select dresses which are reflective and bright. Shoes should fit them well to prevent entanglement or tripping.
Keep Away From Masks: Well, there is no need to camouflage your little ones face with masks. It is dangerous because it can not only block their vision but also make them difficult to breathe. Instead, it’s good to paint their faces with non-toxic paints or makeup. Test the paint before applying on skin.
Pin Your Address: Well, it is important for your child’s safety. It’s smart to write your address and telephone number in her costume. This can be of great help if in case he or she gets separated from you.
Hopefully, the aforesaid Halloween safety tips with toddlers can keep your kids safe during this Halloween celebration no matter what you have planned. So go ahead and enjoy your Hallow-Night filled with tricks and treats, and your favourite Halloween delights!
