How to Choose Safe Halloween Costumes for Your Children

With Halloween just a few days away, costumes have become one of the biggest topics of conversation. While some are purchasing their costumes, others are making them at home. Regardless of what costumes your children choose to wear, it is important to ensure the costumes are safe to avoid unnecessary injuries.

Unsafe costumes can lead children to suffer severe harms. Some of the most common Halloween accidents that can be associated with unsafe Halloween costumes are the following:

  • Trip and fall accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Burn injuries
  • Pedestrian accidents

To keep your children safe as they explore the neighborhood in search of yummy treats, consider the following tips:

  • Make sure your child’s costume is not ill-fitted or dragging

An ill-fitted costume that drags can cause a child injury for a number of reasons. Baggy clothing near the feet or legs can cause a child to trip and fall, injuring themselves on hard surfaces such as asphalt or concrete. Additionally, a child’s baggy costume can come in contact with Jack-O-Lantern flames and cause burn injuries.

  • Make sure your child’s costume has some kind of reflective pieces on it

Because many Halloween costumes can be dark, it is important to incorporate some kind of reflective piece onto your child’s attire. This can help make your child visible to other pedestrians and any drivers that might be in close proximity of your child. Also, you may want to consider including a glow stick on your child’s costume, as well.

  • Include a flashlight as one of your child’s costume accessories.

If your child will be trick-or-treating on Halloween night, you may want to have them carry a flashlight so they can see any uneven or slippery surfaces before it is too late. This can help your child avoid trip and fall or slip and fall accidents caused by dangerous premises.
