Post Socially-Distanced DIY Candy Server For Halloween

We don't get trick-or-treaters even in a good year. This is a fun idea though:

Big Bubble is quite, well, reasonably cautious so no trick or treating or handing out candy for us this year We do have plans to set up the backyard spooky style, and do a type of Easter egg hunt, only with tiny filled pumpkins instead of eggs.

That is a great idea!

We too aren't handing out candy this year. We get so many kids in our neighborhood, it's just more interaction than we're comfortable with this year. I feel bad though. I remember how much my kids enjoyed trick or treating when they were little

We get about 150 kiddos. I'm thinking of maybe setting up a table with treats at the end of our driveway. And refilling as needed.

We probably get that many kids or more even. That is an option setting up a table in the driveway but there's always some kids who will just grab way more than one treat. I think DH is just shutting it down this year.

Holy smokes! We donít get ANY! Itís because we live in the country, but even our next door neighborís kids didnít come over last year. I think they get so much as school, etc. (well, except this year is totally different).

I usually get 200-250 kids a year. I guess at this point I'm still planning on doing it but expecting to buy less candy and hand it out using spider tongs.
