Sorry! We are out of Treats {free printable}

It's inevitable.

Every year I count on a ridiculous number of Trick or Treaters, usually around 200.  I make up individual bags so that I can control the candy distribution {you know, because my husband will give out the quantity of candy based on how much he likes the child's costume (ie. somebody wearing a flannel shirt and carrying a beer bottle with a name tag either saying "Bob" or "Doug" may warrant only a Tootsie Roll while a full blown Nasa Space Shuttle made from cardboard and tinfoil will get a handful of candy)}.

But, it is never enough and there are always the stragglers that ring the doorbell at 9:00 pm (usually the teenagers showing up, yep - you guessed it, as "teenagers") hoping for candy but ending up getting a canned food item from my cupboard because I don't have and treats left.

So, this year I thought I would try to divert the latecomers with this door sign.


Hopefully they will get the message.
