Do you have trouble deciding what treat to dole out to your Halloween Trick or Treaters? If so, you don’t have to default to the customary candy treat. You can hand out sugarless treat alternatives for your Halloween Trick or Treaters. Here are six suggested sugarless treat alternatives for your Halloween Trick or Treaters:
Pencils. Make the parents happy by giving out pencils as treats to your favorite Halloween Trick or Treaters. Many Trick or Treaters are school-age children, and school-age children are often in need of pencils. You may need to keep some of the larger pencils on hand, too, for the younger Trick or Treaters, but pencils are a friendly alternative to sugar.
Microwave popcorn. If you must treat your Halloween Trick or Treaters to something good to eat, let it be the small bags of microwave popcorn. Parents will be happy that they can pull these Halloween treats out of their children’s bags and fill their tummies after a night of fun. Popcorn is healthy, and kids love it.
Stickers. Stickers and temporary tattoos are always a hit with children, so find some large packages of these treats, cut them into squares and hand them out as Halloween treats to your favorites Halloween Trick or Treaters. Stickers and temporary tattoos are an inexpensive alternative to candy that holds high sugar content.
Noise makers. Skip the Halloween candy and give the children some good, old-fashioned noise makers, instead. These come several to a package, and you can probably get them for the cheapest price if you buy them at a party store. These fun noise makers may give the parents headaches, but they’ll surely add to the Halloween festivities.
Tooth brushes. Who says that you have to hand out candy to your favorite Halloween Trick or Treaters? Why not give them toothbrushes, instead? You can get these for a low price when you visit the dollar store, and the parents will be thankful that their children have new toothbrushes to scrub away all the sugar that they chew up on Halloween night.
Glow Sticks. It used to cost quite a bit to buy Glow Sticks for Halloween, and these items were hard to find, at that. No more, though. Businesses have become more Halloween-savvy in recent years, so you can now buy Glow Sticks for a portion of what you used to pay. Help keep your favorite Halloween Trick or Treaters safe by giving them Glow Sticks, instead of candy.
