  • My fifth grader (11yo) will probably go again this year, and probably for a couple more since she has younger siblings and dressing up is fun. For her, dressing for Halloween is a theatrical event (which suits her personality). I sometimes dress up with the kids if we have a theme going.

  • My boys were about 12 or 13. My daughter went with us this past year & she was 12. She just turned 13 Sunday & I suspect this year she will probably want to go to a halloween party if her friends are having any. On a side note, my 19 yr old came with us (he dressed up too) because his girlfriend was out of town (no he didnt actually trick or treat..although some of the people did offer him candy. he declined.) I have two preschoolers, by the my trick or treating treks are far from over. I think anything past 13 is a bit much...we saw some older kids that looked to be about 15 out trick or treating. I personally think that is too old.
