This Halloween candy sign (sometimes known as trick or treat signs) is available as an instant download. This means that you can print it out at the last minute right at home. Simply leave the cute sign nearby a big bowl of candy by the front door and trick or treaters will know that they can grab a piece of candy, or two!

The sign reads “Please take one, just to be fair. Or maybe two… if you dare!” It is a cute sign perfect for those who will not be home Halloween night. Or for those who just don’t want to answer the door!

Why you might need a sign:

Personally, I enjoy opening the door on Halloween night and seeing all of the adorable trick or treaters standing on my front porch. However, as the night goes on and the kids get ready for bed, I’m not so exited about opening that door. My dog ends up barking, kids start crying, it is just not a good idea for anyone!

And that is why free printable Halloween candy signs are such a good idea. It is an easy way to ensure that you can still give candy out to all of the kids that come by, but not have to physically be there to hand it out.

It is also great for when you are out trick or treating with your own kids. Everyone gets to have a fun Halloween regardless of if you are home or not.

My only recommendation I like to tell people is to not put your favorite mixing bowl by the front door. A few years back I had what I assumed were some neighborhood kids who ended up not just taking a few pieces of candy but the whole bowl itself!

Free Printable Halloween Candy Sign | Please Take One

This free printable Halloween sign is available in pdf format as an instant download. It is designed to be printed onto 8.5×11 inch regular printer paper or white cardstock. One sign will print per page. For the best results, I would definitely recommend printing the sign out onto white cardstock if possible.

Please feel free to download and print as many copies of the sign as you need. However, please do not edit or redistribute the files in any way. This Halloween candy sign was create for personal use or classroom use only.

A few years back, I had actually created a different “Please Take One” Halloween sign. However, I thought it was definitely about time for an updated version. However, if you would like to see a different option with the same wording, you can find another free printable Halloween candy sign here. It is also a digital printable file that you can print at home or at a local printer.

What to do if it will be raining on Halloween night:

If it will be raining Halloween night, you want to reuse the sign next year or if you just want it to look a bit nicer, I would recommend laminating the signs. This is the lamination machine that I currently have in my home off and I can definitely tell you it gets a lot of use!

If you do not have a lamination machine, another great option would be to place it into a dry erase pocket or simply a standard sheet protector. It will be able to withstand getting a little wet from potential rain and look a little bit nicer.

Happy Halloween! I hope you all eat lots of pieces of candy and have a super fun and spooky night!

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
