Halloween no lollies printable

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Last year was the very first year we participated in Halloween, the kids dressed up and they had a great time.  We had friends that threw a Halloween party and afterwards as a group the kids all went door knocking, parents tagging along too.  They had fun!

Halloween is not something that I have celebrated with my kids in the past, mainly because my husband and I didn’t grow up with the tradition of Halloween.  But I also don’t like the idea of them knocking on strangers doors and taking lollies.  Some may think I’m a party pooper, but it’s just the way I feel. This year we won’t be door knocking, but I will have wrapped lollies ready for those kids that do. But like previous years we have run out of lollies very quickly, to save the constant knocks at the door I’ll place my ‘Sorry we are out of lollies’ sign on the door.  Usually, it’s known that if the lights not on you don’t knock, but some kids still like to knock.

We live in a quiet street, and when we first moved here about 12 years ago – no 13 now! – we would get a few kids come to the door each year, but now they are all grown up and we rarely get any.

We do celebrate Halloween – it was something I did as a child, and my husband is American, so when my son first asked if they could go trick or treating (which I guess he heard about at school) we readily agreed. We usually only go to about 8 houses, just the people we know in our street, who are open to it. It still usually takes about an hour though, as we stop and chat at each house!

This year I thought it would be nice to take something to give, rather than just receive, but we’ve settled on delivering invitations to a street BBQ as we go.

I love your spider web by the way, I think we will have to give that a go!
