    Default Trick or Treat

    Hi all!

    I am thinking of organising a Trick or Treat for my son and a few of his school friends in my street. I've never actually done this before. Does anyone have any tips? Should I print out a flyer and put it in the letterboxes letting the neighbourhood know this is happening?

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated by me and my super excited 7 year old!! 😀

    I've never done trick or treating with my DS before, but it's pretty popular in my neighbourhood. We ensure we are stocked up with treats though, as we get at least 5 separate groups of kids come to our door!

    One of our neighbours usually does a flyer mailbox drop. Last year they provided a little picture of a jack-o-lantern to stick on your mailbox if you were happy to have kids come and knock on your door. I quite like this idea, and would do something similar if I was to go trick or treating with my DS.

    Yes a lady does a mail box drop in our neighborhood. She tells us to put lights on (and decorations if we are so inclined) if we would like to participate or leave lights off if we want to be left alone. We have so many kids in the area so everyone really gets into it. It turns into a huge street party and I think the kids love dressing up and looking at decorations more than the chocolate and lollies.
