[Tasty Trick 'r Treats]
Halloween and Stamp Collecting month. Two great things for kids (and adults, too.) This year, help the little tricksters at your door to more than sugar and snacks.
Take a clear glassine, slip in a cut-to-fit index card and then fill it with as many American and foreign commemoratives as you think right. Obviously, a US "Movie Monster" commemorative or an Irish Dracula hits the right note.
You can Scotch tape candy to the outside of the glassine or toss them in loose. Your index card can carry a printed message with the name of the local philatelic club or something similar. Maybe the APS website address.
You might even consider using some sort of collectable trading card, what I used to refer to as "baseball cards," in lieu of the index card. Kids like 'em, too.
If the little devils ask what you're handing them, tell 'em the candy's for their tummy, but the stamps are a treat for their mind.
