A Tricky Treat

Well…it’s almost time for the Ghosts & Goblins to come knocking on the door begging to be tricked and treated.  The homes in our neighborhood sit on large pieces of property, some sitting as much as 200′ from the road.  If the kids were to attempt to Trick or Treat the neighborhood they would be plumb tuckered out before they hit 10 houses…So our neighborhood association hosts an annual Halloween Hay Ride & One Stop Trick or Treat

The tractor drawn wagons filled with parents and kids sporting their favorite costume slowly snakes its way through the neighborhood…stopping along the predetermined route so their pillowcases and plastic pumpkins can be filled with the much sought after Halloween treats

As we wait with treats in hand for the hay ride to pull up to our driveway , we visit with neighbors wandering the streets doing their own trick or treating...There isn’t much fun in handing out candy one piece at a time…and because we don’t have the opportunity to trick the kids with a scary farmer sitting on the porch or to jump out from behind the bushes and give them a fright…we must do something that at least resembles the tricky part before the treat...After much consideration and searching the internet I finally stumbled upon an idea for a tricky treat…

Here is what the kiddos will be getting when the hay ride stops at our house…a very Tricky Treat courtesy of  Pinterest via The Queen’s Card Castle!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED…

SURGICAL GLOVES
SMARTIES FOR THE FINGERS
CHOCOLATE MINIATURES FOR THE HAND
PLASTIC SPIDER RINGS
CRAFT RIBBON OR HEMP

  1. This is awesome! We’re doing this one this year.

  2. I love the idea of the smartees in the fingers…fills them out nicely.
    Our church hosts a “Trunk or Treat” in our church parking lot. My husband and I still go sans children now but still enjoy the excitement. We did these one year filled with popcorn.
    Yours look like a present generously filled with chocolate. Love this.

  3. What a fun idea! I can’t believe you’re making 75 of them- that’s a lot of work.

  4. Awesome idea, Jeanne. The kids will LOVE them!

  5. That is so clever!! What a fun Hallowe’en that must be riding together!!

  6. Those were a great idea Jeanne! Were they too much work or would you do them again?
