Halloween is only two days away! [caption id="attachment_293" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Annabel ready to go for last year's Halloween"] [/caption] That means we're due for another snowstorm here in Alberta. Mother Nature tends to have quite the sense of humour when it comes to turning our little ones into popsicles on Halloween evening! Jokes aside, it's important to play it safe on Halloween. Nowadays, technology can help parents out through such ingenuity as tracking apps. Heck, just having cell phones and being able to reach your kids and vice versa while they're out trick or treating is a major safety boon. I remember when I was a tween, I'd be out for hours and realistically, my parents had no easy way of contacting me or figuring out exactly where I was. But I had firm rules on when I had to be home and how far I could go. Such rules should still be applied today as much of Halloween safety comes down to good old common sense. Take a look at my story outlining specific tips to have a safe and fun Halloween. Happy trick-or-treating! And this just in: Face Paint "10 dazzling colours" has been recalled. This face paint set contains high levels of lead so don't use it and return for a refund.
