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?

I love this list of gifts! I dread the loads of lollies that come into the house every Halloween - there's just too much of them! So I definitely welcome non-candy Halloween treats like these. Thanks for sharing at Toddler Fun Friday.
