Picture of Ensure Trick-or-Treaters Only Take One from the Please-Take-One Bowl
I have a daughter. She's almost 3. A Halloween dilemma that I have in my house this year is whether to go trick-or-treating with her and my wife or to stay home and give out candy. If I go with my daughter and wife then I would need to leave a "just take one" bowl on the porch and hope that the neighborhood kids have some semblance of honesty. I decided I would make a deterrent to keep the candy distribution to one piece per trick-or-treater.

This Instructable shows you how to create a quick, cheap, and easy solution to the "just take one" bowl pillaging that the neighborhood kids are capable of. By creating a convincing sign to put near your candy bowl you can limit your candy loses.

Step 1: Materials and Supplies

In addition to the actual bowl of candy, you'll need:
  • Computer with word-processing software
  • Printer
  • Spray adhesive
  • Cardboard
  • Paint stirring stick
  • White glue
  • Razor knife
Hahahah Funny... but seriously... you need better Halloween candy ;)

He did have better candy... until I came by and risked explosive diarrhea for all of the chocolate. Worth it, by the way.

Really though, this is a cute idea. Assuming some people don't take it too seriously. Haha.
