Halloween Ideas and Amusements

Have you ever played a good Halloween prank on someone? While it's not a prank, exactly, I thought I'd pass along my brother-in-law's Halloween idea. You know how every now and then, a teenaged kid will come trick-or-treating, dressed in their sports uniform or something equally unimaginative? You KNOW they're just looking for free candy, right?! Well, throughout the year, my brother-in-law collects condiment packets from fast food restaurants and come Halloween night, he keeps a few handfuls near the door, so when the kids who are too old to be trick-or-treating come along, he thrusts a handful of catsup, mustard, or taco sauce in their bags! Pretty clever, huh? Of course the kids have no idea what they got until they get home and check their bags!

For some other Halloween ideas, watch this:

Thanks for the laugh...I'll share this with the family!
When our kids were young they always got kid's meals and weren't necessarily interested in the toy but we saved them and would use those for the younger kids.

What a great idea of your Bro-in-law. I'll try and collect some ready for next year. As for the video, some of them made me jump too, but it was funny.

Thank you for keeping us entertained while you are on your vacation. It would have been boring without your blog to read everyday.
