Some Ways To Confuse Trick-Or-Treaters
Give away something other than candy (e.g. toothpicks, golf balls, bags of sand, etc.).
Fill a briefcase with marbles and crackers. Write on it, "TOP SECRET" in big letters. When trick-
or-treaters come, look around suspiciously and say, "It's about time you got here." Give them
the briefcase and quickly shut the door.
Get about 30 people to wait in your living room. When trick-or-treaters come to the door say,
"Come in." When they do, have everyone yell, "Surprise!!!" Act like it's a surprise party.
Get everyone who knocks on the door to come in and see if they can figure out what's wrong
with your dishwasher.
After you give them candy, hand the trick-or-treaters a bill.
Answer the door dressed as a pilgrim. Stare at the trick-or-treaters for a moment and pretend
to be confused. Start flipping through a calendar.
Instead of candy, give away colored eggs. If anyone protests, explain that the eggs are the only
thing you had left over from Easter.
Put a crown on a pumpkin and put the pumpkin on a throne on your porch. Insist that all the
trick-or-treaters bow before the pumpkin.
