The Blue Bucket
My blog friend, Georgia, brought this blue bucket to my attention. A mother of a child on the Autism Spectrum was concerned for her non verbal son and his inability to say Trick Or Treat. She came up with the idea to encourage children on the spectrum to use a blue candy bucket. She is spreading the word that if you see a blue bucket on Halloween night, this child cannot say Trick or Treat but enjoys going from door to door like his neurotypical siblings.
You all know that my grandboy, Baylor, is non verbal autistic. Fortunately Baylor has a brother and sister who say Trick or Treat for him but this bucket would be great for him as well. We all want our special needs children to have the same experiences that other children look forward to each year.
Be on the lookout for those blue buckets this year and be especially nice to the child who is toting it around your neighborhood!!
