As a kid, there are few things more disappointing than running up to lit-up house on Halloween, only to find the candy bowl ransacked and empty. And no adults wants to be the neighbor that runs out of candy and is forced to give away random items, or worse, make a mad dash to the store for tiny bars of chocolate that will be on sale in a mere 12 hours. Fortunately, these “Please Take One” Halloween signs will help your trick-or-treaters go easy on the candy so it lasts all night, and you may even score some leftover candy.
Whether you’ll be out trick-or-treating so you won’t be able to monitor the candy bowl, or you just want to admire cute costumes without having to be the candy enforcer, these signs have you covered. A “Please Take One” (or two) Halloween sign is a great way to make sure latecomers don’t miss out. Plus you won’t have to suffer the embarrassment of me last year, handing over Kind bars to kids in Bluey and CocoMelon costumes who didn’t think it was so kind, because I ran out of candy (and yes I did eat some beforehand).
From free printables, to digital downloads, to framed signs you can use year after year, these “Please Take One” Halloween signs are a helpful and polite way to encourage sharing, because there’s nothing scary about that.
