Yeah, I tend to take my mask off, squat down and tell the kids I’m a good monster when they get spooked. They usually warm up immediately. My wife gives out the candy and I just scare the teens and kids who are acting like they are not scared for the sake of their friends LOL.
Most parents will usually stop and compliment my wife and I or take pictures with us etc.
My kids are now getting into scaring kids that come up and they know not to spook the younger kids.
