Halloween Candy Alternatives for Trick or Treaters

Check out these ideas to hand out to trick or treaters that are NOT Halloween Candy! 

Halloween will be here before we know it. I get tired of all the sugar my kids come home with on Halloween and a few years back I decided it was time to be apart of the change I wanted to see. Why can’t we hand out something that is inexpensive and not candy on Halloween night to the trick or treaters? I decided I wanted to make a change.

Just because it’s not candy, doesn’t mean it can’t be fun! Plus, some of these are bulk buys too and because it’s not candy, if you don’t use it all this Halloween, you can use it for party favors or more throughout the year. Think ahead to birthday parties, Easter and maybe even Christmas stocking stuffers! Here are some of my favorite items to hand out instead of candy!

Fun Things to Hand Out on Halloween INSTEAD of Candy
