A Tricky Treat - Trick or Treat for Those in Need

If you take your kids trick-or-treating in your neighborhood, challenge them with this twist on an old tradition. As they knock on doors, ask them to request a single, non-perishable canned good at each door (rather than candy). Help your kids gather the cans, and then go with them to donate the food to a local food bank. Reward your kids with something special for giving up the usual swath of candy to help those in need.
