Safety First!


Happy Halloween from Melanie Dawn!

Don't forget to be safe this Halloween:

* Encourage your kids to wear face paint and not masks as it hinders their peripheral vision leading to trips or falls. Be especially careful when crossing roads.

* Use only safe, FDA compliant face paints and not 'dollar store' or acrylic paints. These can be damaging to the skin, cause burning, inflammation and irritation not to mention that it is very hard to remove without causing discomfort. I use a Professional, water-based make-up called Snazaroo which can be bought from Party Bazaar and Michaels. I've used it for 15+ years and never had a reaction or complaint : "the worlds safest and easiest to use face paint!" Check out their website for more info on paint safety.

* Do not Trick or Treat houses that are not decorated or do not have their porch lights on. The residents might not celebrate Halloween and we should respect their wishes.

* Inspect your kid's loot bags before they consume anything!

and  ALWAYS accompany your kids when they're out Trick or Treating, making sure they are aware of stranger danger and NEVER to enter the homes they are visiting.
