With so many kids having food allergies and intolerances now, as well as people waking up to the problems with sugar you might want to offer non-candy Halloween treats this year.
Some added bonuses about the non-candy Halloween treats are that you can save any extra treats for the next year’s Halloween without worrying that it might go bad. Or if you get stuck with a lot of extras you aren’t feeling like you have to eat all the leftovers.
Last year when Halloween came, I realized I hadn’t picked up anything for the trick-or-treaters and did a last minute run to the store. They didn’t have any options for non-candy treats that were affordable.
The prices on the bags of candy were shocking to me as well. There were several other shoppers in the aisle with me as we are looking at what the candy options were and many of us were talking about how expensive it was.
Make sure to plan ahead. You can’t always pick up the non-candy treats at the last minute, but with Amazon Prime shipping you should be able to get it very quickly.
Many of these ideas are cheaper than the bags of candy were for me last year, but some are more expensive. I wanted to put in a variety of options.
If you are wondering what are some good Halloween trick or treat alternatives to candy, check these awesome non-candy Halloween treat ideas!
Kids love temporary tattoos. This is a great non-candy option for Halloween. Here are some fun emoji tattoos that both boys and girls are sure to love. There are also fun insects and bugs tattoos and monsters.
Fake Insects and Bugs
Hand out some fun creepy, crawly fake insects this year! Kids will have fun trying to scare their parents or siblings with them or just enjoy playing with these bugs.
Glow in the Dark Bouncy Balls
I haven’t met a kid yet who doesn’t like bouncy balls. These are not only bouncy balls, but they also glow in the dark! Pick up these some of these Glow in the Dark Bouncy Balls here.
Another item that I haven’t met a kid who doesn’t like. Stamps are so much fun and there is so much satisfaction seeing the perfect shape just by pressing it down onto paper. Here is a great assortment of stamps.
Pirate Gold Coins
Arrghh, Matey! Nothing like bringing home treasure on Halloween. These pirate coins are fun!
Frisbees are so much fun for kids! Give out some small frisbees to your trick-or-treat visitors.
Draw a pumpkin face on the mandarine orange to make it more festive.
LED Finger Lights
Finger LED lights are super fun. Any trick-or-treater would love to get these! We’ve given these out before and it’s fun to then going through the neighborhood and seeing all the kids with finger lights on. Pick these up and so you are ready to hand them out this year.
Glider Airplanes are another fun non-treat item to give out on Halloween. Here are some fun gliders.
Kids love things that they can fling through the air. These flying frogs are perfect!
You can give out some wiki stix. Wiki stix are yarn that is coated in wax. You use this waxed yarn to create pictures with templates. So for these wiki stix, you’d use it to make an outline of a ghost or a cat or another fun Halloween theme.
Glow Sticks are always fun and a great way to help your neighborhood trick-or-treaters stay safe! You can pick some up here or sometimes around the beginning of October I see them in the Target dollar section for about $3 for 100.
Kids love play-doh! Give out small little bins of play-doh this year.
Chinese Finger Traps
Do you remember these as a kid? They were so much fun! In case you didn’t ever have one of these, you put your fingers in each side and if you pull, the “finger trap” tightens around your fingers so you can’t pull them out.
In order to get your fingers out, you need to either have someone else help you or use your thumb and middle finger to hold the ends of the trap together.
This is another fun item to hand out to kids instead of candy this year.
Glow in the Dark Fangs
All kids like these fangs that go over their teeth, how about some glow in the dark ones? You can find a large pack of these here.
Fun themed pencils, erasers and notebooks make writing more enjoyable for kids.
There are all sorts of fun Halloween bookmarks you can hand out. These ones are a bit different and are sure to delight the little trick-or-treaters coming to your door.
Another thing kids always love are keychains. Hand out some fun skeleton keychains – you can find them here.
Most kids like to color and these fun Halloween coloring books are great! Here is a great assortment of Halloween themed coloring books.
