My kids are 14,11,7,5. I think my 13 year old at the time went last year...but I think it was pushing it. I would say 12 is a good "cut-off" age for actually going around to trick-or-treat...but I think dressing up is for every age!

What do you think?

13, then they can have fun Halloween parties with their friends, in place of Trick or Treating.

I would say around 12-13. I think I was 12 when I went trick or treating for my last time. The next year I had a Halloween party instead. I think in high school I pretty much always ended up going to some sort of Halloween party instead of trick or treating.

I think about 12, but my ds will be 14 and wants to trick or treat. He said he'd take Megan out. I thought it was funny that he was already onto the big brother scheme.

I thimk about 12. I especially hate when the older ones don't even dress up. I always give them candy anyway though b/c I don't want them to come back and egg my house, lol
