Kids certainly look forward to the candy season (aka Halloween) but their parents may be taken back by the abundance of sweets children will bring home. After all, there is only so much candy they can eat. Some may even be concerned about health issues. What about kids with food allergies, for instance? Obviously nobody wants to be that house to hand out toothbrushes but kids will love these non-candy Halloween treats. Bubbles, Lego, glow sticks, games, playdough, slime, vampire teeth, finger puppet rings, bugs, spider soap, funny pencils, beads and strings – what’s there not to like? The list also includes some healthy Halloween treats, like GoGo SqeeZ pouches and oranges – a nice break from all the candy.
Most of the treats on the list come with free printable and instructions. Some are 100% handmade Halloween treats, like the glow in the dark slime, while other require buying a few supplies and printing out labels.
UPDATE 2017: The list contains now 27 Halloween treat ideas.
