Just because you live in an apartment doesn’t mean you have to miss out on wonderful Halloween festivities like trick-or-treating. This Halloween pastime can be just as much fun for those living in St. Mary’s apartments too. There are actually several advantages to trick-or-treating in an apartment building. You never have to go outside or brave the cold weather; your neighbors are close by, and your children will never be too far away. The Apartments of Wildewood are here with some tips on how to get the most out of your Halloween trick-or-treating in your St. Mary’s Apartment complex.
Establish Rules with Your Children
Even if your kids don’t like the idea of trick-or-treating with mom or dad standing over their shoulder, make your Halloween a safe one by making sure younger children stay in the same hallway as you at all times. For older pre-teens, make sure to have them promise to not enter anyone’s apartment, set a concrete curfew, and advise them against trick-or-treating with any neighbor you may not be on good terms with.
Make sure your children know not to eat anything until after coming home to your St. Mary’s apartment. Go through their bag with them and discard any treats that appear to be tampered with or already opened. Pitch any homemade Halloween goodies that aren’t from a trustworthy neighbor, and make sure to get rid of any candy with ingredients your child is allergic to.
Get in the Halloween spirit by decorating your St. Mary’s apartment door to welcome trick-or-treating guests. Be sure to keep easily scared or aggressive pets away from your front door, and only offer treats that are pre-packaged. This will help parents feel that their children are safe and that you are a good apartment neighbor.
