Top 20 Non-Candy Halloween Treats
October 4, 2017 1:12 pm | by

Halloween usually translates into sugar overload. My daughter’s school has an annual Trunk or Treat. Rather than hand out more candy, I opt to give out pretzels. They’re still not healthy, but they’re slightly better off in my mind. Here’s a list of non-candy Halloween treats. My daughter has received most of these, and we were all pretty happy with them!

The List

  1. Bubbles – Always a hit
  2. Stickers – Find some fun Halloween stickers
  3. Pencils – Great for older kids, too
  4. Crayons or Markers – We could always use more
  5. Fruit snacks/fruit leather/raisins – Healthier option, but still sweet
  6. Animal crackers/Goldfish crackers – Great for snacks on the go
  7. Reusable cups – Cute and functional
  8. Juice box/milk box – Great for Halloween parties
  9. Applesauce pouch – You can even get unsweetened
  10. Erasers – Fun to play with
  11. Glow sticks – Perfect for Halloween night
  12. Small toys like airplanes, squishy eyeballs, bouncy balls or cars – Kids love this stuff
  13. Playdoh – Great non-food alternative
  14. Pirate’s Booty – Aye, matey!
  15. Mini flashlights – For safe Trick or Treating
  16. Spider rings – Spooky and fun
  17. Temporary tattoos – So many designs
  18. Mini bottled water with Halloween label – Wash the rest of the candy down
  19. Cheerios/teething sticks for little ones – Definitely nice for younger siblings
  20. Mini notebooks – Kids love doodling

Other Non-Candy Ideas

Think comparable to what you would find in an Easter egg. Avoid items containing common allergens like nuts so all the kids can enjoy their treat.

What else would you suggest for parents who want to hand out non-candy Halloween treats?
