    Don't wear the sheet that has yellow stains on it. Always ensures a little ghost is happy!

    what about scaring your neighbors? Or at least making them laugh?

      or what about going around in a group (in costumes) and "carol" - only instead of Christmas songs, sing Halloween songs.  ??  Start a new (and hopefully funny) trend.

        Great idea and super fun!! Especially in a college town where i live!! The number of grown-up-kids definitely outnumbers the actual children! I don't know that many Halloween songs though...the words I mean...

    I always dress up and we decorate the yard with tombstones.

    My tip? Dollar stores sell halloween themed ziploc bags. We fill them with different kindsof candy and and them out.

      Great tip! I'm trying to figure out how to make a huge spider web to cover my porch...I want to put those spider rings on it for the kids and I think it will look cool with the jack-o-lanterns!

    I'm not sure if you're looking for tips for Trick or Treat candy, but I make little ghosts by covering round lollipops with something like white tissue paper, making a face (or else sticking on a face sticker), and tying the "neck" with ribbon.  They look cute sticking out of the tops of candy bags or taped on the front.

    I use glow sticks in my pumpkins instead of candles.
    Give some to the kiddos for around their necks & to carry in their pumpkin buckets or what ever bucket they have this year.

    Cool thing is it lights up the bucket too I can see them well at night as we walk smile

    Last year I stapled some to the celling of my porch too helped light it up more *going do that again
    love the ghost sucker idea smile

    I always always ALWAYS dress up for Halloween, it being my favorite holiday and all. I love passing out the candy but sadly the last few years have been sad since not a lot of kids. In Hawaii, esactly 4 kids came to our house. I was so sad.

      you should dress up and carry candy around with you! Go out and wish the neighbors a happy halloween and give candy to any kids you see smile I guess that's being a bit pushy...my neighborhood is aging and there are very few kids left...maybe i'll be more creative with the goodie bags.
      I also got a magazine of halloween inspired recipes...pretzles in the shape of bones...mummy wrapped hot dogs...frozen candy ice cube hands for your punch....great ideas!

    Great tips! I love to dress up too! I also make candy bags out of extra fabric to match costumes (if I have time). last year, my friend's daughter was a princess, so I made her a pink sparkly bag and painted her name on it. She loved it!! She carries her lunch in it now. I also dressed up as her fairy god mother...in a huge pink gown and wings smile
