Bobbing for apples is a tradition that is said to date back to 43 AD, when the Romans combined their festival honoring Pomona, the goddess of fruit and trees, with the Celtic Samhain (Halloween) festival.
A modern variation for little kids, who have a hard time chomping on an apple, especially with no hands, is bobbing for donuts.
Buy a box of plain, supermarket donuts (Entenmann’s are particularly delicious) and hang them by strings from a tree branch, clothesline, or even a doorframe. Set the kids loose with one instruction: No hands.
Do this after real food has been eaten, or no real food will be eaten.
By the way, in the olden days girls who place the apple they bobbed under their pillows were said to dream of their future husbands. Not sure about donuts.
