We normally get about 250 trick-or-treaters. I usually like to prepare something special for the first 25 kids. This year I prepared special bags for the first 20 kids. I also prepared 111 bundles this year. I took industrial size coffee filters, stamped on them with Halloween stamps, added a few pieces of candy and tied with Halloween ribbon. I first found out about this craft here. I was going to make it years ago but I did not realize I needed the large coffee filters and I gave up on the craft because my small candy would not fit. This year I was determined to try again and found the extra large coffee filters. It took a long time to make 111 bundles but it was sort of fun. My Mom helped me with the craft.
I am prepared with enough supplies for 300 this year. I leave for last items we would want to eat. It is a warm day but windy so I am interested to see how many kids we will get tonight.

Special Treat Bags
It is entirely possible that my trick-or-treaters will not think that this bag of treats is anything special but it is what I decided to give this year. In the past I have made special containers such as these felt bags.
We received 251 kids. The coffee filter bundles were very well received!
