Halloween Treats 2014

Halloween Pumpkins 2014

I enjoy handing out treats to trick-or-treaters on Halloween. Usually around 250 – 300 kids come to my door in a 2 hour period on Halloween night. This year we had 244 but it was cool and a little rainy.

This year my parents visited for Halloween. I believe that you don’t need to have kids to carve a pumpkin.  My mom, dad, and I each carved a pumpkin.

Teal Pumpkin

Halloween morning when reading the news I learned about the Teal Pumpkin Project. So I searched my craft room for the closest paint I had to teal, quickly painted my pumpkin, printed out the sign, and gathered some non-food items. I was glad that I learned about this project when a mom noticed my pumpkin and asked about the non-food treats. Her son had food allergies and my teal pumpkin was the first one she found that night in my town. He picked out a glowing finger.

This is a basket of some non-food items I gathered: glow fingers, bouncy balls, stickers, mini puzzles.

I have a tradition of handing out something special to my first 25 trick-or-treaters. This year I did not make a craft for them but I gave out large candy bars to the first 30 kids. The Reese’s and Kit-Kats went first and then the Hershey bars.
