The Beat 92.5 wants you to have a happy and safe Halloween, so we put together these tips for the whole family.
There are so many decorations and costumes to be had, it’s always a good idea to check and see if they are subject to any recalls. Health Canada keeps a database for this and you can check here:
- Costumes, wigs, beards and accessories should be flame resistant. Oversize costumes can get caught on things or even catch fire if they come in to contact with a lit jack-o-lantern.
- Use LED lights in your jack-o-lantern for that same reason.
- Reflective tape is a great way to be more visible to motorists, so are brightly colored costumes.
- Face paint is always a better option than masks, which can hinder vision and breathing. Always test face make up in advance and check the list of ingredients.
- Carry a flashlight and stay in well-lit areas, trick or treating at homes with their outside lights on.
- Remind kids not to go in to any homes, and to not eat candy until it’s been checked by an adult.
