Halloween Safety Tips

Posted by infinitygoods on October 29, 2007

  • Be sure to clear your front yard and steps of any trip hazards.
  • Remove anything which can hurt someone, be damaged or stolen, such as ladders, extension cords, flower pots and containers, bicycles, children’s toys, garden hoses, etc.
  • Clear walkways of leaves and other slip hazards.
  • Be sure to turn on as many outdoor lights as possible.
  • If using candles in your jack-o-lanterns, be sure to leave enough space at the top for the candle to burn safely and make sure decorations cannot blow into the candles’ flames.
  • There are now many styles of inexpensive battery-powered lights to use inside jack-o-lanterns, even styles which flicker. You can also use a small string of outdoor, stay-cool Christmas lights, and you can also use glow sticks, which come in several colors such as green, orange, yellow, pink, etc.
  • Make sure your electrical extensions or outlets are not overloaded.
  • Keep all pets safely inside. Both animals and children can get spooked by each other.
  • Be particularly vigilant about keeping cats indoors and safe from any possible escapes, even a few days before Halloween, as weirdos, cult members and miscellaneous crazies enjoy hurting our dear kitties even more around this time of year.
  • Check all candy before your children eat it.

Infinity Goods Wishes You and Yours a Safe and Happy Halloween!! 😉

Thursday 13 #3 — Halloween Costumes We Have Worn

Posted by infinitygoods on October 25, 2007

Thursday 13 Banner Pumpkin

With Halloween in less than a week, I am sharing with you 13 last-minute costumes we pulled out of our closets and toy box accessories for Halloweens past.

  1. Pirate (complete with tatoos using mommy’s makeup and also mommy’s costume jewelry)
  2. Farmer (think overalls, straw hat and a bit of straw in the mouth)
  3. Punk (jeans and LOTS of hair gel and makeup, add a few small hardware store chains to look tough)
  4. Angel (mommy’s white dress with Christmas garland for a halo. We used a garland with tiny golden stars. A trumpet, a paper scroll or silk lilies can complete the look.)
  5. Shepherd (daddy’s oversized shirts with a scarf for a belt and the baby blanket or any piece of cloth for the head and a stretchy headband to hold the headpiece in place.)
  6. (King) David (Basically the shepherd costume with a sling hanging from the belt) and
  7. Goliath (Daddy is the Goliath accessory. Cardboard armor spraypainted gold, and a broom handle with a foil point for a spear.)
  8. Harry Potter (mommy’s black, knee-length satin robe over child’s everyday school uniform, funny nose prop from a birthday party favor — just take off the nose and keep the round glasses, print out the Griffindor badge from the Internet, mommy’s makeup for the lightning scar.)
  9. Train Engineer (we happened to have an engineer hat from a birthday party favor, jean overalls, scarf around neck.)
  10. Knight (Mommy’s fancy black sparkly sweater became chain mail, black tights or sweats, toy sword, helmet and shield)
  11. King (use plastic or paper crown and parents’ fancy clothes. Adults knee-length will become child’s full-length. Make sure it’s not too long so that they don’t trip!)
  12. Caesar (Any white sheet or cloth. Small silk wreath on head. For humor add a Hawaiian shirt and a camera and suddenly Ceasar travelled through time and he’s on vacation)
  13. Doll/Clown (Mommy’s make up to the rescue once again!)

I hope that sparks some ideas for you. We haven’t found the need to buy those ultra expensive yet super cheaply made party store costumes yet. In the dark of All Hallows Eve we wish you will have a cackling good trick or treat time. Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha !!! …… (I sure hope you heard my attempt at humor with my laughing witch and my spookily haunting music in the background! 😉 )
