Just like adults, kids have been through a lot this year. And it’s safe to say that in some fashion, our holidays will look a little different. But, one of our favorite Halloween traditions is still on!
When families boo the neighbors, kids go around their neighborhood to anonymously drop off goodies at doorsteps. It’s a wonderful activity and it continues to be an easy and cheap way to send love to your neighbors.
