Sure it used to be that carrying an old pillowcase around the neighborhood was enough to get you by. However, we all know that times have changed and that the kid with the pillowcase is the one that’s going to be left behind on the trick-or-treat trail (it is a bit BIG don’t you think)! Having a candy carrier that is just as stylish as your costume is where it’s at these days. Some costumes come with a coordinating treat bag and others are just found by chance. In fact, my kids (or perhaps it’s me…) are so picky about their candy carriers that almost every year we’ve had to get a new one. The first Halloween, we got by with a miniature pumpkin that fit about five pieces of candy. It worked great because she couldn’t eat it anyway and well, we all know who did…
This year we’ve rounded out our treat bag choices by going with what’s big enough to fit all their loot and what will compliment their “oh, so adorable costumes!” Do you change your treat bags out every year?
