When I was a kid, Halloween was one of my favorite holidays. I loved dressing up as my favorite superheroes and go door-to-door trick or treating with my friends. Unfortunately, my mother brought my Halloween fun to a screeching halt when she heard stories of people’s putting poison and razor blades inside of the treats (people still question the validity of these claims).
Nevertheless, I miss the carefree days of trick or treating. I want my kids to have fun, dress up, and overload on candy the way I did when I was their age. However, I worry about their safety and I don’t feel always comfortable allowing them to go trick or treating on Halloween.
To make sure my kids get to enjoy the holiday each year, I’ve discovered 5 fun alternatives to Halloween trick or treating.
