Have you heard of “candy sticking” yet? Our UGlu® Dashes make it easy to take part in this year’s clever & crafty socially-distant Halloween trend!
Although traditional trick-or-treating has been on the fall even before the pandemic (we’re looking at you, trunk-or-treating!), this year has pushed Halloweeners to find creative new ways to safely take part in this spooky Autumn holiday loved by both kids and adults.
One great way to help Halloween still happen this year -but avoid strangers coming uncomfortably close to your front door- is this new “candy sticking” or “trick-or-treat sticks” trend!
You take a long stick, attach candy and Halloween decor to it, and put it out on your lawn on Halloween day for happy trick-or-treaters to come a’pickin. It’s a simple and fun craft!
