Don’t let your little witches and wizards fall victim to an evil spell, or accident at a Halloween party this year
According to recent reports this Halloween parents should make their children wear goggles for apple bobbing and use novelty contact lenses with caution.Although the reports have been laughed off by many and dubbed “heath and safety gone mad” by others, we’re reminded that, although great fun, there are a number of things mums and dads need to take into consideration when planning a Halloween party.
Often, kids want the spookiest atmosphere possible. This may mean turning off the lights, but if you’ve got tables and chairs in your party room, make sure they’re put somewhere safe where your little monsters can’t run into them and fall over.
If you’re concerned about apple bobbing as a game at your Halloween party, try a safer alternative by stringing up ring doughnuts for little ones to eat with their hands behind their backs or try some homemade Halloween recipes.
Dressing up may be one of the most fun aspects of Halloween, but make sure that if your child has a mask, wig or costume in general, it doesn’t restrict their eyesight or movement in anyway that could hurt them.
Although most kids will tell you that a wizard is no wizard without a wand or staff, you always need to make sure that they don’t get carried away if they decide to have a magical battle. Although the spells might not be real, the wands can hurt if someone is accidentally hit.If you’re planning to celebrate this Halloween, make sure you check out our essential guides for spooky fun and trick or treating.
