Consult Costume Labels To Prevent Danger
Reading labels may seem to be the last thing anyone would want to do on Halloween; after all, it's the one night when children can dress up like adults and adults can act like children - a night of spirit, festivity and relaxed inhibitions. But with all the ghouls and trolls running amok, a lot can go wrong that parents might need to watch out for.
One of the easiest things is to check the labels on any costumes to make sure they are absolutely safe. Halloween decorations can often become an over-the-top competition among neighbors, and several potentially dangerous elements may be included in a front-yard display. Making sure a costume is labeled as "flame resistant" will effectively prevent any possible mishaps.
Keep Safe By Reading Candy Labels
Reading food labels is important in any circumstance, especially when that food comes from an unfamiliar source. Such is the case on Halloween, when trick-or-treaters go door to door and come back with pillowcases full of candy.
The safety issue is not that the candy is tainted or hazardous since kids usually stay within a trusted neighborhood; however, it's always good to stay on the safe side by checking candy labels, especially if a child has a food allergy.
