Saturday is Halloween, and even though Halloween is on a Saturday this year, many people will not be trick or treating (understandably) because of the coronavirus pandemic. Experts have warned that the traditional trick or treating is a high risk activity, so what do we do?
Well one creative mom in Colorado came up with a creative candy hack as an alternative to traditional trick or treating.
She came up with the idea to glue the candy on to sticks, and then stick the candy in her yard so kids could grab them without coming up to their actual doorstep and exposing them.
The idea became so popular after she tried in her yard, that now her whole street will be participating. Not to mention, it will be a fun thing to prepare with the kids before they put on their halloween costumes.
Here are some ‘candy sticking’ tips from Winter:
-Tape the candy onto sticks ahead of time.
-Stick candy in ground during prime trick-or-treating time.
-Be sure to switch on an outdoor light, so kids won’t trip and fall when it gets dark.
-Bring the candy inside as you would any other Halloween, so animals won’t eat it.
-Set candy back from the edge of the lawn in case people are walking their pets.
However you choose to spend your Halloween, make sure you stay safe!
