Spring has arrived and the much
awaited festival of colors is just around the corner. Holi is undoubtedly one
of the most exciting festivals, especially for kids. Little kids get really
happy to see colorful balloons and gulaals everywhere. However, amidst this
excitement it is obvious for parents to get a little concerned about the safety
of their children. Read on know a few safety tips for kids revealed by the
experts from Billabong High International School, Thane:
• Safe colors: Parents must ensure to buy only natural or herbal
colors because these colors are not much harmful for the skin unlike the
synthetic colors available in the market these days. These colors will not do
any damage to the skin and hair of your little ones and they would also get
washed away easily with soap and body shampoo.
• Clothes: To provide maximum protection to the skin of your
children, make them wear full sleeved clothes in light fabric before they go
out to play holi.

child right before the holi celebration. It is advised to apply coconut oil
because it is really good for hair and skin, moreover it would also prevent the
colors from sticking to the skin.

color filled balloons at others but this act can prove to be dangerous as it
has a possibility of causing damage to the eyes and other parts of the body.
