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.
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.
I hand-out a variety of treats. Pretzels, cheese balls, chocolate.
Potato chips and Goldfish
Popcorn balls, coffee filter bundles with chocolate.
It was a fun evening and the kids seemed to enjoy the treats they received!
Here in Groveland we had 2 – yes that is two – kids come to the door this year! I can’t imagine having that many show up! We do usually have a few more but never the numbers you do!
Soooo kind of you to share such nice treats. Blessings Always, Mtetar
Don’t know why it said anonymous! Though I’m sure you probably knew with the Groveland comment!
