2. Send Them Down a Tube.
Send your candy flying down a shoot from your door or yard by using PVC piping (available at Home Depot.)

3. Tie Them to a Line
Make treat bags and use string or rope to tie them to a clothes line or twinkly lights. Or hang them from low branches like Alice from the Palace did above.


4. Make a Lollipop Garden
Use lollipops or tape candy to kebab sticks and “plant” them in your garden.”

5. Use a Grabber
Walmart sells grabbers that you can use to put a little distance between you and your trick ot treaters.

6. Send it on a Zipline
Ok, this one if going to take a little extra energy. Check out this zipline from Garden City, MI. They attached a ghost on the zipline to carry candy from their porch to the sidewalk. Check it out here.

7. Play a Game of Toss
Have a window that opens on the second floor? Make a game of it and toss the candy down.
