Safety and Comfort is Important with Toddler Halloween Costumes

Jul 6, 2008
Halloween is just around the corner, coming up on October 31, and it is important for you to let your toddler child have a chance at joining in on the Halloween festivities. Just because your toddler is not old enough to really understand the process of choosing their toddler Halloween costume and trick or treating door to door, or carving the Jack-o'-Lantern, or any of the lore or history behind this special occasion, that simply does not mean that they cannot be included with the adults and the older children who are celebrating as ghouls, ghosts, goblins, mummies and pirates.

Some of the most fun that an adult can have is helping a child to pick out their Halloween costume. You can help to make sure your child picks a toddler costume that will be safe as well as suitable for his or her age. You should also make sure that your toddler will be comfortable. When it comes down to it, simple costumes are usually the best to buy. Try to avoid costumes that are bulky and ones that have a lot of snaps or zippers.

You are going to want to keep both safety and comfort in mind when it comes to choosing toddler costumes. Halloween can be a big event for your toddler, and you are not going to want your son or daughter to be cranky because their costume is too warm, too bulky, or just uncomfortable in general.

Use your creativity to make some of your child's costume. Although many toddler Halloween costumes come in a large variety of shapes and sizes, some of the accessories that come along with the costumes aren't very adjustable. So many parents find that when dressing a toddler in his or her Halloween costume that it is very helpful to make some of the pieces at home. There are numerous materials, cloth and otherwise that can be used when making your toddler's costume. This will also help to ensure that your child will be happy in his or her costume.

With so many sizes and styles out there, it is guaranteed that you will find the perfect costume for even the pickiest of toddlers. If you have a son, then you can go with costumes such as a goblin, pirate, pumpkin, Dracula, fireman or a ghost. If you have a daughter she will more than likely want to be a princess, angel, cheerleader or girl pirate.

To make sure that you have the greatest selection to choose form when it comes to trick-or-treating on Halloween it is important that you start looking for your costume early, no matter what type of costume it is. Even if you get it early, you can let your little one wear the costume before Halloween to make sure that he or she is used to and likes to wear it. This makes it much easier when Halloween actually comes and your toddler needs to put on the costume.

You want to be sure to make this a safe and fun filed adventure for your toddler. Try to steer clear of the scary houses as this can turn your toddler off of Halloween and make it a horrible experience for him or her. Be sure to take a flash light with you and a fun sack for your toddler to keep their treats and prizes in. Watch your toddler for signs of irritability so that you will know when to call it a night. Your toddler will last much longer with toddler costumes that allow them freedom to move around without getting over heated. Edited by Hetsil Protage
