How old is too old for trick or treating?
Is there an age that a child reaches where they are just too old for trick or treating? If so, what age do you think that is?
Well I didnt think my 11 year old would want to do it any more (she didnt last year) but she came home this weekend with a Cop costume lol she was very excited. My friends trick or treated in high school (being goofy) but I think 7-8th grade is getting to be the end of it. I think the older kids should have a costume party!
Hmm.. great question! I think it would probably vary from kid to kid.. I just remember suddenly I didn't want to do it anymore.. I was a tween - maybe 12ish?
I personally think that 8th grade might be the last year but I know their are high schoolers that still want to trick or treat. I think if the older kids are causing any problems or homeowners or the little ones that are out and about I think its fine. its once a year no matter how old you are to dress up and have a little fun!
