Remember Safety this Halloween

 Costumes: choose facepaint rather than a mask as it will be better for the child to breathe and see. I also know from experience that the mask never stays on long and come off often and just adds something else for the parent to carry
homemade face paint recipe
  • Baby lotion

  • Baby powder or corn starch
  • Tempera powder, various colors
  • Cups or bowls
  • Paintbrushes
  • A spoon
  • Optional:
    • Cotton swabs
    • Mirror
    • Paper towels or tissue
    Squeeze some baby lotion into a cup. We used about 1 Tablespoon per cup. Add tempera powder to the baby lotion. We used about 1/2 teaspoon per cup. Mix together until blended. Add baby powder or corn starch to thicken paint and help it dry faster. We used about 1-2 teaspoons per cup. Mix well.

     Carry a flashlight and if possible some glow in dark jewelry, bracelet or a glow stick will help others to see child better as well as offer a bit of light so child can see path better

     Check to see what preset hours are for trick or treating and try to abide by them. Having a pre-planned route helps as well

     Do not eat candy along the route wait til get home to inspect. Toss any treats that are unwrapped or damaged. If homemade treats are from some where that you do not know they should be tossed as well
