Is Trick-Or-Treating A Good Idea For Children With Special Needs?

Tonight, millions of children, dressed from Frozen characters to famous athletes, will take to neighborhood streets all across the nation for trick-or-treat. This year, however, there may be a healthier alternative to the sweets and treats they’ll bring home.


If you know me, you know I love a good costume! In fact, I’ve been known to plan a year in advance. I just love to get my hands into some craft supplies! Every year for a decade, on trick or treat night, our family has hosted a Costume Party. The planning goes on for weeks, signature drinks for the adults, spooky snacks and a costume contest. We’ve never missed a year. Not even the time our foster daughter had her g-tube placed.
