My feeling has been: If you tell your kids not to take candy from strangers. . . why would you let them go out and take candy from strangers?

I was not against them eating themselves into a sugar coma. So I made up a candy treasure hunt. I bought them the candy that they like, hid piles of it all over the house and back yard. I wrote up some riddle clues related to each location and placed them by the candy. We turned off all the lights, handed them flashlights and the first clue. We also carved pumpkins.

I'll have to ask them if they felt deprived by not being allowed to Trick or Treat.
