Tips for Choosing Halloween Costumes for Kids
With masks, costumes, scary decorations and candy, it should come as no surprise that Halloween is a holiday beloved by many children. When choosing Halloween costumes for kids, it’s important to remember that safety is first. Avoid costumes that are designed from flammable materials. Also, ensure the costume does not drag on the ground or have a hem that could cause a child to trip or fall. Masks should be well fitting and ensure a child has clear visibility. If a child cannot see through a mask, make the eyeholes larger. You may find the best solution is to use face paint rather than a Halloween mask.
Choosing Halloween costumes that enhance visibility helps increase your child’s safety. Look for costumes that include lights or glow in the dark. You may find that adding a reflector strip to your child’s costume is the best solution to ensure visibility. Children should carry flashlights when trick or treating as well.
Climate varies nationwide and children should be comfortable, safe, and warm on Halloween night. By choosing a Halloween costume that is one size larger, you can ensure your child can wear his or her jacket under the costume. If a jacket adds too much bulk to the costume, have your child dress in layers under the costume. Long underwear, tee shirts, leggings for girls, and even sweatshirts can be worn under the costume while ensuring your child stays warm.
Double check sizing before you buy. Always compare the size chart to your child’s measurements when buying Halloween costumes. Keep in mind that sizes vary and your child’s costume may be a different size than his or her regular clothing size.
