My husband and I both enjoy taking our daughter around the neighborhood to trick or treat. We live in a great community full of families and children that also love trick or treating on Halloween. Last year we joined all of our neighbors and left a big unattended candy bowl on our porch while we were out trick or treating. I used my daughter’s chalkboard easel to make a fun sign to set out next to the candy.
I remember growing up my brothers and I were always excited when neighbors gave more than just one piece of candy. I was sure the first group of children that discovered our unattended candy bowl would dump it all in their bags and run. I was pleasantly surprised when I came home to discover we still had leftover candy to hand out for the rest of the night.
Do you leave a bowl of unattended candy on your porch while you are out trick or treating on Halloween?
