Andrew Beattie shared on his facebook an invention he’s made to ensure that kids can safely social distance while trick-or-treating this Halloween. He has created a chute that he attached to a railing so he can send down candy to trick-or-treaters so they could have a “touch-free experience”. He said it was made with “throwaway materials” for example a cardboard shipping tube and took about 20 minutes, “If it brings comfort to those who are a little more reluctant, awesome!”.
“Our 6ft candy chute is ready to be attached to the handrail! Come on, Halloween!!!” he said under a picture of the orange and black tube in front of his house. In an update he explained how candy chute works “This will be a completely ‘touch-free’ experience for trick-or-treaters. There will be a sign at the bottom of the tube showing them where to hold their bags and buckets so the candy can drop right in.” “I, personally, will be wearing a mask and changing gloves frequently, and the candy will be from a factory-sealed bag that I’ll open outside by the candy chute.” “I want our youngins to be able to have some sense of normalcy and maybe a little bit of exercise in all this madness, and I’ve put a LOT of thought into how to do so safely,” he added. Great way to keep everyone safe this halloween!
