Halloween Blue Buckets for Autism
The Blue Buckets are a way to help others be aware that a child may be autistic and unable to speak up and say “trick-or-treat” while out this Halloween.

History of the Blue Bucket at Halloween
The idea came from a mom named Michelle Koenig from East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania who has a 5-year-old son with autism. Since he is going out for the first time this Halloween, she wanted a way to help bring awareness to him and children that may have a difficult time saying “trick-or-treat” while visiting houses for candy.
Another mom posted on Facebook and had her post go viral (it has since been deleted) but it said:
“This year we will be trying the blue bucket to signify he has autism. Please allow him (or any other person with a blue bucket) to enjoy this day and don’t worry I’ll still say ‘trick or treat’ for him.
This holiday is hard enough without any added stress. Thank you in advance.”
This is a great think to keep in mind this Halloween.
