Rec Therapy Today did a little informal research to determine what is a recreational therapists favorite Halloween candy?.
Danny Pettry – Two people had written, “recess” for this answer. I liked that because it has to do with play. I changed all “Recess” answers to Reese’s. Please note this answer also included included several different answers, including: peanut-butter cups, Reese pieces, and Reese’s pumpkins.
Danny Pettry’s reminder — always remember and consider patients who have allergies or diabetes or other eating disorders or needs at Halloween time.
