Halloween Tricks and Treats

Happy Halloween!!

This is our first Halloween in the new pad so I'm not sure how many costumed kiddos will knock on our door but if it's 1 or 100, we're ready!

Instead of Trick-OR-Treats, we'll be offering both Tricks AND Treats.

I found these red wood bins at Fred Meyer and snagged them since they were on sale and also match the color in our office so they can be used throughout the year. I filled the "treats" basket with all kinds of sweet goodies. The "tricks" basket is filled with gags and magic tricks I purchased from Oriental Trading.

I made the signs using old dictionary pages because I think they are creepy! I mounted them with photo corners onto a piece of card stock that was "aged" with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Here's a shot of some of the tricks. There is also a rope trick, some puzzles, and whoopee cushions in the bin! Hopefully the kids will have fun with these. If not, Jake and I will :).

I hope you and your families have a safe and happy Halloween.

My thoughts are with anyone suffering from the recent storm. I hope that you are all safe, warm and dry. Many cyber hugs to you and yours.

I love the idea of handing out Tricks as well as Treats! And your bins look lovely!

I love the treat and tricks idea. I'm sure you'll have a lot of kids knocking on your door. I also love how you used the dictionary page to give it the "aged" look.

Happy Halloween Mareth!

That is such a fun idea! Of course, I am sooo not surprised. :) We live in a rural area and never get Trick or Treaters. :( I would love to do something like this.

Hope your weekend is restful and fun.
