5 Fun Non-Candy Halloween Treats

Halloween can be a pretty chaotic and sugar filled time for kids and we totally agree that candy is all part of the fun. We've found over the years that it can also be nice to hand out something a little different to our neighborhood kids. Here's 5 Fun Non-Candy Halloween Treat ideas if you are looking to change things up this year.

 

5 Fun Non-Candy Halloween Treats

 

1. Glow Sticks

These are awesome because kids can enjoy them whilst they are Trick or Treating! Grab a big multi-pack from the likes of Amazon, Target, Walmart or Party City and hand them out instead of candy bars. They can easily be bundled up with a label too like Mommy Posh decided to do. We've never met a kid who isn't fascinated by glow sticks!

2. Halloween Hand Sanitizer

This is such a fun gift idea by The Idea Room! We even love the spooktacular 'Germ Slayer' name. Functional and fun!

3. Mini Stationary Sets

Our kids got one of these last year and were so excited to open it up and start getting creative. You can include things like pencils, erasers, crayons, stamps, stickers and even a little notepad. You can often buy these in big multi-packs at Target and Walmart. It might not be the treat your kids immediately want, but trust us it will get lots of use later on. The addition of little flag labels by diyinspired.com is adorable!

4. Spooky Straws

If your kids are anything like ours they get super excited about curly straws! We love this idea to put a cute tag on a curly 'Ex-straw Spooky' gift, by It's Always Autumn.

5. Mini Play Doh Pot

Play Doh is one of those awesome ageless treats. Our eldest is just as happy playing with it as our youngest is! It encourages creative play and imagination, all the while working those fine motor skills hard! You can often find multi-packs of mini pots on sale in the Halloween sections of Target and Walmart. We love how The Simply Crafted Life turned her pots into mini invitations to make monsters!
