Yoda – Jedi Master

You can purchase some elf ears and have fun with green face paint or make up in order to go to work on your own Yoda costume. By matching it with a light saber and cloak, you will be in a great position to get the wonderful costume that you might have never thought possible.

There is nothing like jumping in and getting your kicks from these wonderful movies by re-creating Princess Leia’s hair design or attempting to re-create the boyish wonder of Luke Skywalker.

Halloween Trick or Treating Safety Tips

Halloween is a time of witches and ghouls, when the streets come alive with fiends and monsters. It is also a very exciting time for the children as they get ready in their costumes to go trick or treating. In the excitement it can easily be forgotten about the safety of the children.

They will be going onto the streets in the dark, in most cases with an adult, but there are still many that will go out in small groups on their own. Young children are not aware of safety issues, as the whole world is something that should be explored. So what safety tips need to be taken on board for Halloween?

There is actually a long list concerning safety aspects on Halloween, and some of them are just as much for adults as well as the children.


• Carving out a face or something else with a pumpkin is a long tradition of Halloween, however as a sharp knife is required, it is always advisable that the adults do this part. The children can use a marker pen to draw a face on the pumpkin that the adult can then cut out for them.
• Although candles are often used inside pumpkins, it is much safer these days to purchase a small LED torch or glow stick from an online auction site. If you are going to use candles, then an adult should be present all of the time.


• As it is usually dark outside when kids go trick or treating, make sure that they have reflective tape on them. This is because most Halloween costumes are dark, and so it is difficult for drivers to see them. By putting reflective tape on them, they will then become visible, and it also adds an extra piece of spookiness to the costume.
• When you are out hiring or purchasing a costume, always make sure that it is fire retardant.
• Always make sure that the children are wearing shoes that fit well, and they can walk in. A lot of accidents are related to footwear.
• Masks are often used, but these can hinder eyesight, so buy a face paint kit and use that instead.
• Ensure that all children are carrying pocket flashlights with new batteries.
• At least one child should be carrying a mobile phone, and be capable of calling 911.

Trick Or Treating

• Always stay on the sidewalk, do not walk on the road.
• An adult should accompany kids under 16 all of the time.
• Plan a route before you leave and stick to it, and show the kids where they will be going.
• A lot of child accidents involve a motor vehicle, so keep tight control of them near roads.
• Only houses with a light on the porch should be visited.
• Make it clear to children that they should never go in a home under any circumstances.

Halloween is a fantastic time for both adults and children, and by following the above tips you are ensuring that the potential for any problems is being kept to a minimum.
