If you're attending a Halloween party with your children this year, you should aim for fun and safety. Halloween parties aren't the best place for young kids, but if you watch over your child everyone can still have fun while staying safe. baby halloween party, Baby safety, be safe, halloween party safety, halloween safety, holiday safety Pumpkin carving safety: If there's pumpkin carving at the party, watch your little one around the table. People may leave carving tools within reach of children, plus all those little pumpkin seeds pose a choking hazard if your tot gets a hold of them. Additionally, once the pumpkins are lit, be sure to keep your child away so he won't get burned. If you'reĀ throwing your own party, I suggest using LED candles, which are flame free, soot free and much safer than traditional candles. Turn down the noise: Noise is not only scary for some young children, but it can also harm their developing ears. If a party is too loud you may need to leave. If it's your own party, just keep the music down to a mild volume. Safe party treats: Many party foods and treats pose a choking risk for babies and toddlers. Bring a few munchies for your child, or if you're throwing the party, be sure to include some safe and healthy Halloween treats for babies and young children Have safe costume fun: If you dress up, choose costumes that are warm, comfortable and safe. If costumes freak your baby out, choose a cute Halloween tee-shirt and Halloween hat instead. Little prize dangers: At Halloween parties for kids, there are usually little prizes given out for games and costume contests. That's fine, but most tiny prizes aren't safe for babies and younger kids - if the goodie will fit through a toilet paper tube, your baby shouldn't have his hands on it. Watch the floor too, as prizes tend to fall from kids' hands. Image via stockvault
