I can personally speak to the candy craze because growing up, Halloween was all about how much candy you could get and how long you could make it last. Looking back at it now, I wish I would have saved my teeth from those sugary dangerous treats…thank goodness for baby teeth 😉

Now that I am an adult, I have gone a different route as far as trick-or-treating goodies are concerned. I have a nephew who has a peanut allergy, so I have made it a point to have items that are safe for all kids so everyone can enjoy the evening’s festivities. At Scarlett’s age, we still aren’t going out for hours, but this year, we can’t wait to get out and about for a bit! That means we will have to have some treats ready to go.
My husband likes to incorporate our likes and activities into our trick or treat bowl. For instance, we handed out about a dozen mini disc golf discs, which is one of his favorite hobbies. Such a fun way to spread the sport!
