Creative Dad's Touch-Free Trick or Treat Goes Viral


One father’s idea for a touch-free trick-or-treat experience has grabbed international attention. 

Andrew Beattie created an orange and black chute that he attached to a hand rail outside his front door, so that he could deliver candy while keeping a distance. In his now-viral Facebook post, he said he wanted kids to stay safe but also have some sense of normalcy.

The chute was made with “throwaway materials” like a cardboard shipping tube and took about 20 minutes.   There will be a sign at the bottom of showing the little ghosts and goblins where to put their bags and buckets so the candy can drop right in, “touch-free.” Andrew says he’ll be wearing a mask, changing gloves frequently and the candy will be from a factory-sealed bag.

Andrew says if it brings comfort to those who are a little more reluctant, then that’s awesome!  I bet his house won’t be the only one with a COVID chute…Andrew’s FB post has been shared 75-thousand times!
