    Awesome suggestions for keeping our children safe this Halloween season! Make-up for a Halloween costume is so much better than a mask for being able to see well. That’s one tip I used every Halloween when my kids were young.

    Everyone should pay attention to these tips. Keeping a safe Halloween is more important than some of the crazy stuff that can happen. After all, who wants to close Halloween fun with a trip to the emergency room?

    Letting the kids think they have costume accessories in their safety items is great!
