This year seemed to be a quiet one for Halloween. Probably because it was on a Monday. Normally we get a lot of trick-or-treaters on our street. We usually go through at least three big bowls of treats and got out trick-or-treating ourselves, but this year we barely got through a single bowl.
I bought a lot of little goofy toys to give out because not everyone is great with candy and kids love it when there is something left after they’ve eaten their sugary haul.
It worked out well because I let them choose what they want and there was mostly candy left. The kids loved the toys!
We didn’t do much for costumes either.
Autism makes costuming hard sometimes.
You can never go really scary, and he gets scared of other kids too.
Originally my son wanted to be a super hero, so he got a Batman costume but then became scared of it. (I don’t know why, it’s just how he is.)
My daughter did the same thing, she wanted to dress up like a nun, but changed her mind and ended up a cat. She also didn’t want to deal with her costume at school so she dressed as a Nudist on Strike.
Eventually we ended up a kitty, puppy and a veterinarian, haha.
We also made some blood splatter Halloween cupcakes. My daughter took great pains in decorating just the perfect way.
