Stupid to Make Homemade Halloween Treats?

I'll be flying all day on Halloween, but I'm thinking of making homemade treats for my parents to pass out. I'm wondering if this would just be a waste of time, though.

I don't have kids, but I'm not sure if I'd be too wary of letting my kids eat homemade goods from people in the immediete neighborhood. I'd like to think some parents who knew mine would let their kids eat stuff that I made. I'm making a ton of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies anyway and am wondering if I should give them out.

Do any Serious Eaters have young children? Would you let your kids eat homemade goods from neighbors on Halloween?
