Keep it Simple this Halloween

Here are some strategies that might be helpful:

1. Keep it simple and safe. Choose costumes that your child is comfortable in and allows for freedom of movement.

2. Make sure the child's view is unobstructed. Makeup is preferred over masks.

3. Let your child choose, if he/she is able. If your child wants to wear pajamas to school for Halloween, let him/her wear them if appropriate. Offer a stuffed animal to take (preferably not a favorite – just in case it gets lost.) Just think of the time you’ll save getting ready in the morning!
