Blue Halloween Buckets to Help Children with Autism

The meaning of blue Halloween buckets.

Posted in: Acts of Kindness, Good Deeds

Parents of children with autism have been promoting a new way to help Halloween be more fun for their kids: blue Halloween buckets. Mom, Omairis Taylor, explained that it can be stressful for children with autism when houses wait for them to say โ€œtrick or treatโ€ or ask them questions and wonder why there is no response. The blue Halloween buckets let people know that the child might not be verbal or comfortable talking.

Hereโ€™s what Omairis posted on Facebook:

My son is 3 years old and has autism. He is nonverbal. Last year houses will wait for him to say TRICK OR TREAT in order for him to get a piece of candy and there I go explaining the situation for the next 5 blocks. This year we will be trying the BLUE BUCKET to signify he has autism. Please allow him(or anyone with a BLUE BUCKET) to enjoy this day and don’t worry I’ll still say TRICK OR TREAT for him, ill get my mom candy tax later ๐Ÿ˜. This holiday is hard enough without any added stress. Thank you in advance.
P.s. I have made this post public in hopes you will share and get the BLUE BUCKET message out there for Autism Awareness and acceptance this Halloween๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ’™
