Trick-or-Treating through the House

You still have time to enter the Christmas apron will close on Nov. 1st. Click here to enter.

This is a fun activity for your toddlers and pre-schoolers who may or may not entirely understand the concept of "Trick-or-Treating". (I have to give my friend Teresa credit for this idea- she introduced it to me about 3 years ago....and we are still doing it every year.☻)
We wanted to invite y'all, but we had to limit the number of people...since our house only holds so many.
Invite a few friends over- I invited mostly friends my children knew- and have the moms come and bring some treats (candy in these here parts.) Have the moms stand inside of the rooms of the house, with the door closed- one mom in the bedroom, one in the laundry room, one in the bathroom...etc. The children- who are wearing their costumes and carrying their trick-or-treat bags- knock on each door and say "Trick-or-Treat" and you give them a treat just like  the real thing- except its all inside your house with people you know.  Repeat the process as many times as you wish. Not only is this fun for the little ones, it helps them understand how Trick-or -Treating works.
This was our fun, short, and sweet Halloween party this year. We still have a church party and Halloween night.... hope we all survive.
Happy Trick-or- Treating where ever you are!
