If you have the candy fall into a tray or basket at the bottom, the kids can just reach in and pull it out and be on their way.
That's more like it.

That's an option too.

You could just cut out the middleman and scatter candy all over the ground and tell the kids they can have whatever they can pick up.

I once left a bowl of candy on the doorstep with a note on the door saying please take one, just to see what would happen. I watched the first kid that came and he dumped the whole bowl in his sack.

Never did that again

I tried to talk my wife into getting a t-shirt cannon last night, I got her to say it can be plan C, after the PVC pipe and just handing out candy with gloves.

I see that trick or treating is being ruled out for some places in Ontario. I wonder if things will change here? I also wonder how many kids will be out this year?

Our neighbourhood is going to try a short parade route for the kids.

Plan is just to circle the block, distance between families, neighbours will simply wave to the kids. Gives the kids a chance to still dress up.

We’ve got candy waiting for them when they get home.

Yeah and that’s good for sure. My general thought is that the kids are fine and safe in school, where they’re indoors for the majority of the time, so Halloween should be fine. But I guess I’m not sure what others are doing and how many kids to prepare for.

My wife made a bunch of bags with candy bars and what not in them. They are in a box in the basement. We will just hold the box and everyone can grab their own bag after it sat in the box for 10 days. Should be fine.

Assuming nothing changes health wise in our house till then.

With Halloween on a Saturday is it acceptable to send the kids out early in the daylight? Like 4? Or do we still have to wait until after dinner around 6?

No one will be ready for the kids until at least 5:30-6pm.

That's what I kind of figured but I thought maybe this year things could be different and we could get this done early especially if the weather is not warm.
