When I was a kid, we went Trick-or-Treating by ourselves without a care in the world! Unfortunately we live in a slightly different world these days. And unfortunately, Halloween has become a Holiday that is quite a bit more dangerous than it was before. But, with these simple tips, you can keep your kids safe and still have a great time! Modify the tips depending on your child’s age!

  • If possible (or if your kids aren’t too cool yet) always send your children with a chaperon.

    Ok, This may be much easier said than done. As your kids get older they are going to want to go with their friends and not Mom. Offer to drive them from street to street as they trick or treat. Tell them you will meet them at the opposite end of the street. Hint to your kids: You get places MUCH faster driving. More places=More Candy!
  • Send your kids with a flashlight, glow stick, glow in the dark tape or other light. By having your child carry a flashlight, a lit Trick-or-Treat bag, glowstick etc… not only can you keep an eye on them easier, but they are also much more visible to cars. When kids get excited they tend to dash across the road without looking. By having your child carry a light, accidents with vehicles can be greatly reduced.

  • Keep costumes safe. halloween2

If your child is going to be wearing a mask, make sure they can see out easily. A mask should also be easily removed without any assistance. (Your child should be able to take his/her mask of by themselves). A costume should also be easy to move in and not restrict your movement or the ability to walk and climb stairs.

Hey Everyone! 

The Fashion Canvas =&0=&I am originally from Utah and have been blogging for the last two years. It has been such a fun up and down rollercoaster and it has been so much fun connecting with brands, other bloggers and especially readers. =&1=& =&2=& =&1=& =&4=&People always tell me that I am the Queen of color and I love that. When wearing color, people associate a feeling of happiness and confidence. If color is hard for you to pull off, try doing something subtle by adding a bright purse or piece of jewelry to an outfit. =&1=& tassles6 =&6=&They are such an easy option to throw on to wear for a summer bbq, a coverup at the pool or you could even dress it up to wear for a night out with some great heels. Here are some great options : Option 1 // Option 3 // Option 2 // =&1=& =&8=&While I am loving anything strappy, I have also been dying over tons of gladiator shoes and espadrilles this season. Here are some of my favorite flat picks for this season : Option 1 // Option 2 // Option 3  tassles7 =&1=& =&10=& =&11=& Happy Monday and hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! xoxo=&12=&
