When Halloween is around the corner, your child may have his or her eye on the fun activities that go along with the holiday. When your child has an accident, however, that lands her on crutches, trick or treating may no longer be a viable option. When your child is just starting out on crutches, getting around is no longer easy. Much less in a cumbersome costume in the dark. Here are a few alternatives to trick or treating that might help your child get through the holiday while having a little fun at the same time.
Alternative #1: New Trick or Treating venues
The tradition is to simply walk around your neighborhood, ringing door bells and shouting trick or treat in order to get candy. There are plenty of other places you could consider, however, especially when your child is on crutches. Ask friends and family members for advice and check into places like malls, church parking lots, schools and other local areas that have trick or treating activities. Your child would not have to work as far in these locations and you might even be able to use a wheelchair to get her from store to store.
