Non-Candy Halloween Treats Kids Actually Love

October 20, 2017 1:36 am

Armies of Moms have puzzled over the years about non-candy Halloween giveaways that will bring a smile to the most discerning little ghosts and goblins.

The fact is, for most young children, the fun of trick-or-treating door-to-door in costume is more exciting than the treats they happen to collect – and many parents confiscate most of the sweet stuff anyway once it reaches home.  

A panel of parents brainstorming at a PTA meeting in California came up with a formidable list of stuff that makes a great alternative to candy treats.

More good ideas can likely be found at your nearby dollar store.

Food treats:

Juice boxes – Little trick or treaters can work up a thirst. Be sure to choose no-sugar added juices.

Fruit cups – Tie a black or orange ribbon around individual cups of applesauce or other cut-up fruit.  

Granola bars – Kids never get tired of these chewy little treats. Seasonal pumpkin-flavored varieties are available.

Raisins – Those tiny little boxes of raisins seem to appeal to kids of all ages.

Baked chips – They may be fairly empty calories, but they‘re a sugarless, kid-friendly treat.

Non-food treats:

Slime – little plastic containers of slime are a natural pick for the icky Halloween season.

Plastic body parts – Little kids are sure to get a kick out of plastic lips, noses, or fingernails.

Action figures – These or other small toys, such as Hot Wheels cars, are favored by  kids and great for trading.

Instant tattoos – Wash-off Halloween tattoos are widely available at this time of the year.

Play-doh – Individual containers of colorful Play-doh are a hit no matter the time of year.

Bubbles – Another perennial favorite, plastic bottles of magic bubbles are  a treat for most younger kids.

Stickers – You’ll find vast arrays of popular Halloween-themed stickers at almost any toy, drug or big-box store.
