Wear Comfortable Shoes
Bare feet and plastic costume shoes are a recipe for disaster, especially when younger kids are involved. Trick-or-treat night involves a lot of walking so it helps to wear a comfortable pair of shoes. After all, no parent wants to end up carrying their child from door to door in order to collect candy.
Lose the Mask
Masks can complete any costume, but they also bring a few dangers to the Halloween celebration. Children who wear masks may experience breathing or visibility problems – a dangerous problem, especially with cars out on the road. Some masks may also contain the heat from the child’s breath.
Non-toxic makeup can go a long way in completing a costume and making trick-or-treat night much safer. Makeup is usually more comfortable than masks, as well.
Fall nights tend to get darker sooner, making it harder for drivers to see pedestrians dressed in dark clothing and costumes. Wearing reflective strips or glow sticks can help make your child more visible to drivers. Traveling in groups will also make kids easier to spot as they cross the streets.
From all of us at Pfeiffer Used, we hope you have a safe and happy Halloween.
