5. When it comes to costumes:
- Make sure that drivers can see your child by using costumes with bright fabrics, or decorate them with reflective tape. Give each child a flashlight to carry.
- To prevent falls and other injuries, make sure your child’s costume fits properly and is no longer than her ankles.
- Make-up and face paint are safer than masks because they don’t block your child’s vision. If your child is wearing a hat, wig, or scarf, tie it securely so that it won’t slip over her eyes.
