Mom Invents Genius Trick or Treating Hack, and It’s Worth Recreating
A mom's 'candy stick' trick or treating hack may just be winning Halloween.
Wendy Reeves Winter, of Denver, Colorado, decided to secure each piece of Halloween candy to a lollipop stick and plant them all into the ground of her front lawn. It looks like it worked pretty well! Obviously this is super easy to replicate here in South Jersey with any kind of taffy or lollipop, but with some tape or hot glue you can pretty much attach any fun-size piece of candy to lawn stick.

Instead of hoards of little trick-or-treaters going up to strangers' doors, touching doorbells and sticking little fingers into a shared candy bowl, a mom came up with a creative alternative that still allows the little ones to collect candy for Halloween. “I felt like there had to be a way to do it safely while still being able to give the kids a fun Halloween," the mom said. This clever trick allows kids to get Halloween treats without getting too close — and sticking with the physical distance guidelines in place this year.

Wendy even showed her followers how to go about the project, and offered a little advice, “You can use regular tape and do all of the work ahead of time to affix your candy to sticks,” she wrote. “It's a fun activity with a glass of wine and doesn't take long at all!”
I experimented a little more with Candy Sticking for trick or treating this year and learned a few things.

Wendy seems to share my sentiment that so many kids would really be bummed out if trick or treating were cancelled, telling the website cafemom.com, “I felt like there had to be a way to do it safely while still being able to give the kids a fun Halloween.”
So, is Wendy's candy hack one you might try yourself? Let me know in the comment box below.
