Halloween is here, or will be in a very short time. It’s time to start picking out Halloween costumes for our kids, and if you’re really lucky, they know exactly what it is that they want to be so you can order their costume saving you a trip to the store to find it.
However, maybe your child is like my middle child, hours of trying to decide, she would decide and then change her mind, again and again. In the end we spent at least an hour in the costume isle and before she made up her mind. I should have just ordered her first choice.
Picking Out Halloween Costumes for Kids

Make sure costumes aren’t too long, you don’t want your kids tripping over hems, you also want to make sure that shoes fit well to prevent tripping.
Try to use face paint instead of a mask if possible, you don’t want to impair vision.
Make sure that costume clothing and wigs are fire resistant.
Avoid accessories that are too sharp, swords that your child could fall on and get hurt.
Make sure your child is able to be seen: reflective lights, glow sticks, and flashlights.
At the end of the night make sure to look over what your kids have received to make sure they haven’t received anything dangerous or that they are allergic to.
