I should clarify that older kids (or teens) who get all dressed up and have fun with it are ok with me. Unfortunately I've seen mostly rude or ones with a bit of attitude around us. Or the girls are wearing really really revealing clothes... like butt cheeks nearly hanging out etc... they go for the "slutty" type costumes. That, IMO, is kids growing up too fast. Or the boys just throwing on a bit of facepaint, or wearing their hunting jacket and saying they are a hunter. I want to see a bit more effort than that if you want candy! lol. There are a few that do it right, get decked out in costume and have fun without being rude etc, but they have been fewer and fewer over the past couple years.
I'd much rather see a positive activity for that age group that can get them all doing something fun and keeping them out of trouble but they still feel like they are adequately celebrating. Something they'd look forward to instead of feeling like they are getting left out because they aren't TOTing.
Dh likes to have fun with the older ones who are either not in costume or have attitude. He lays on the porch roof with a giant spider on a fishing rod and drops it down on them. Oh, you should see the reactions! Trick or treat? Oh, no costume? Trick it is!
