Health Tip: Dress Kids in Safe Costumes

Tips for a happier Halloween

(HealthDay News) -- It's a thrill for kids to don costumes that are sweet, silly or scary. But it's most important that children are kept safe.

Here are recommendations from the U.S. National Safety Council:

  • Choose costumes and accessories that are fire-resistant.
  • Place reflective tape on costumes and trick-or-treat bags to help others see children after dark.
  • Use nontoxic makeup. Test a small spot to make sure there's no skin reaction.
  • When trick-or-treating is over, wash off all makeup to help avoid irritation of the eyes and skin.
