101 Non-Candy Halloween Treat Ideas

101 Non-Candy Halloween Treat Ideas! Need alternatives to candy this Halloween for school or house parties or to hand out to trick or treaters? This list of 101 Non-Candy Halloween Treat Ideas has something for everyone.


Do you need alternatives to candy this Halloween for school or house parties or to hand out to trick or treaters? This list of 101 Non-Candy Halloween Treat Ideas has something for everyone.

101 Non-Candy Halloween Treat Ideas

Not everyone wants to give out candy for Halloween. Sometimes children have allergies, perhaps your family prefers to not add to the evening sugar rush, or maybe you would just like something different to hand out for Halloween?

A few notes about these 101 Non-Candy Halloween Treat Ideas:

• Note that not all items are suitable for all ages.

• If you have a variety of items to offer your trick or treaters, place all the items on a tray or in a giant bucket. You will be shocked at how many kids will pick the toothbrushes. If a parent is trick or treating with their youngsters, ask the parent to help choose, especially if the children are very young toddlers.

Most of these list choices are Halloween-centric. If you prefer a bouncing ball that isn’t a bouncing eyeball (IOW, more everyday than holiday), simplyb choose that instead.

Remember when you get home to always check your child’s trick or treat bag for unwrapped edibles or toys that are not age appropriate, as well as for items your child may be allergic to, discard as necessary.
