  1. Halloween Treat Sacks

    General Halloween
    I am jumping on the bandwagon to give out small toys with the full size bars this year. I have already collected mini Play-Doh cans, mini stencils & erasers (will get pencils to go with them) and some Hot Wheels. I wanted to put them into little paper treat sacks - the flat "vintage style" (not...
  2. Candy factory theme help

    General Halloween
    I’m thinking of doing a twisted candy factory haunt. Does anyone have ideas for the different rooms? I don’t want it to be a Wonka factory though.
  3. Walmart Clearance Easter Candy Disguised for Halloween

    General Halloween
    Last year, I hit the Walmart Clearance shelves after Easter in search of half-priced candy for TOT. While most of it was packaged for Easter, I was able to get Sponge Bob Gummy Krabby Patties, Sixlets, Razzles, Nerds, and a large bag of Skittles/Starburst mix in regular colored packaging. I...
  4. Mermaid!

    Halloween Props
    I am dancing with delight! Our mermaid skeleton came today--well, yesterday--it's late, and I am absolutely happy. I was worried that she would be a cheap piece of junk, but no. She is beautiful, articulated, and a sort of weird grayish color that rather suits a sea creature. We got her from...
  5. Unusual Handouts

    General Halloween
    So, candy is the obvious favorite for handing out at Halloween, but I know of an online magic shop with decent prices on all those cheesy gags and jokes from when I was little. Thus, along with candy, we also give out crap like trick squirt lighters; Chinese finger traps; the trusty...

  9. Hickory Grove 2018

    General Halloween
    Wow, what a season. I am certainly sad to see over with. That amazing feeling of all the work culminating to that faithful night pure joy. It does warm my heart when the neighbors are encouraging and appear genuine in the praises they gave this year. Unfortunately, I was taking a final during...

    General Halloween
    Heh heh heh First year for placing this AtmosfearX little girl in a window very close to where the TOT's line up for treats. Ran the audio to an even closer speaker. One kid screamed and ran all the way back to the road!

  12. A TOT "post mortem"

    General Halloween
    After a long hiatus, I finally got to participate in our neighborhood's TOT! This year I went with more of a Harvest theme with our decorations. Some corn stalks, a small pumpkin patch, and retro-inspired decorations. Amazingly nothing was stolen or vandalized, which was the cause for the...
  13. Full Size Candy Bars?

    General Halloween
    Hi all!! My husband and I have been having this debate. Full size bars or fun size? I usually give out 3 pieces of the fun size stuff.......and who has a clue how much of it I eat. The way I see it based on 3 pieces plus my consumption it would be a wash money wise. What do you give out?
  14. A trip to Target - Crowd Levels

    General Halloween
    I was surprised. There were A LOT of people in the Halloween section, most displays and decorations were gone. There was candy left but even that was getting smaller in supply. I did grab 2 bags of backup candy *Butterfingers and Nestle Crunch* that were $2.66 a piece or 3/$8. I bought 2...
  15. How Much Candy do you give out?

    General Halloween
    I usually give out a big size Goldfish snack bag (from Sam's) to any toddlers 2 and under and for the tots a full size KitKat bar. I can't afford the full size candy this year so I bought Mars chocolate assortment, Skitlles and Rice Krispy Halloween minis. I've never given out the small bars...
