Here's How to Make a Halloween Candy Chute for Trick-or-Treat This Year

Asia's Tech News Daily

The pandemic forced us to press pause on many things in our lives: vacations, special occasions, family gatherings, and much more. But before Covid-19 makes us cancel another big moment this year, we think Halloween and the Halloween spirit can very much still happen with just a few tweaks. After all, the joys of Halloween lie in having fun dressing up in costumes and in traditions like telling ghost stories and going trick-or-treating. In order to make this Halloween a safe one, everyone should plan to wear masks all throughout the night, whether they are Halloween-themed or not. Beyond the masks, keep friends and family safe by maintaining the recommended social distance of 6 feet between yourself and anyone else. But how do we do that when trick-or-treating?

© David Dee Delgado Keep your trick-or-treaters socially distanced with this safe and fun Halloween idea. Follow these instructions to make a candy chute.

Well, the answer to this was thought of by Ohio dad Andrew Beattie when he posted a photo of his six-foot-long orange-and-black candy chute that he attached to his handrail last year. Beattie would stand at the top and slide candy down the chute, and kids opened up their bags to collect the candy from a safe distance at the bottom of the tube. If you have a suitable railing on your porch, you can simply attach a PVC pipe or cardboard tube to the railing with tape or zip ties and send the candy down that way. Be sure to deck out the tube with Halloween-themed paper or festive paint.

If you don’t have a compatible railing, you’ll have to get creative! To make your own replica of the chute, you will need the following items:

To put it all together, follow this tutorial and you’ll achieve the result in just a few minutes. Don’t forget to be creative with your chute after it’s done, after all everything you be Halloween-themed on the spooky 31st!
