Trick-Or-Treating Tips

While Halloween may seem different this year, you can still help your children have fun. Here are a few ideas for those who want to take their children trick-or-treating and those who want to brighten kids’ days by still having trick-or-treaters.


  1. If you wish to keep things safe, stick to only going to houses of individuals you know. Before you head out, check with those individuals to make sure they are home.
  2. If you’re out trick-or-treating in town, keep a safe distance from other trick-or-treaters and wait for any group ahead of you to leave a house before you approach.
  3. Keep sanitizer on hand and use it periodically throughout the night.
  4. While this may cause a few tears, avoid from having your children sample any of their candy until the next day.

Allowing Trick-or-Treaters

  1. Avoid having children ringing your doorbell by setting up a table outside with individually wrapped treat bags. Relax on your porch to check out all of the fun costumes, but remember to keep your distance.
  2. Be sure to sanitize your doorbell throughout the evening and maybe even offer a sanitizing station outside your door with a large bottle of sanitizer on it.
  3. Most of all, make it fun! Make the children that come trick-or-treating at your house feel special and excited about the holiday!

As always, remember to make sure your homeowner’s insurance is up-to-date. You never know when you will need it!
