Dress up with care for Halloween
Halloween Safety

When dressing your little ones (or yourself), keep these safety tips in mind:

  • Always wear costumes that are labeled flame resistant.
  • Wear bright, reflective costumes or add strips of reflective tape to improve visibility.
  • Do not wear decorative (colored) contact lenses unless you have seen an eyecare professional.
  • Wear makeup and hats rather than costume masks that can obscure or obstruct your vision.
  • Test the makeup you plan to use in advance for a possible allergy.

In addition, inspect any plug-in decorations for signs of wear and tear (fraying or bare wires or broken plugs) and replace them if damaged.
