Children’s Safe Costume Ideas
You can use face coverings by incorporating masks into your child’s Halloween costume. Many companies are selling masks with characters’ mouths printed directly onto the fabric. Whether it’s a favorite movie hero or a cartoon character, you can find a mask your child likes and then design the costume around it.
Other ways to use a mask as part of a costume is to wear a black mask and dress like a ninja, pick out a pretty pink mask so your child can dress like a princess, or choose something with a skull face printed on it for a safe and spooky costume.
