Hey Zombie-F, have you seen this hand? (you probably have, but thought it would be worth sharing!)Zombie-F said:Ultimately, I someday want to construct a skeletal hand out of wooden dowels and some kind of mechanism that can grab the candy and hand it out. That would be awesome to hand out candy with a "real" skeletal hand.
I have seen that before... just couldn't remember where! Thanks for refreshing my memory.ghostie said:Hey Zombie-F, have you seen this hand? (you probably have, but thought it would be worth sharing!)
Thought of it right away when reading your post. Would be a kick to hand out candy with it!!!
When I was younger, I used to help hand out treats for my parents (who get literally hundreds of TOTers). When we just poured a bunch of candy in a big container and handed it out, I noticed that some of the less-than-well-mannered TOTers wanted to linger a moment to ogle the candy and try to pick and choose what they wanted. Not only was this frustrating, but it caused the line to back up. With goodie bags, the kids take their bag (all of which look alike in the big washtub!) and are in a hurry to get out of line so they can see what's in it. The goodie bags also help to avoid unpleasant experiences like kids trying to snatch handfuls of candy.ghostie said:Grapegrl, How do the treat bags help with bottlenecking at the door? (I wish we had bottlenecking! We're lucky to get twenty kids at our new house...) Nice dragon! I have to ask, where did you get him? I had fun looking at your HP stuff. Have you seen Britta's Hogwarts page? Big HP fan here too. And man, your mum's do well in FL!
