First off, I’m not an anti-candy mom. I love the holidays, and treats are a fun part of them. However, we get A LOT of trick-or-treaters. The last several years we have spent $20-30 on candy and still had to turn kids away when we ran out. I thought it was a little exciting to see that I could hand out small toys and it would be CHEAPER.
I personally think it would have been super fun as a kid to knock on a door and be greeted with a bowl full of glowing bouncy balls, rather than the typical candy dish. It’s something different, and mixes things up a bit. Kids are still going to get candy from all the other people, so I want to do something fun and different. Here are a few fun non-candy Halloween options (all the glow-in-the-dark toys are listed together at the end):
Stick-on Earrings. How fun would these be to hand out? And they are cheap too. You can get 144 pairs for around $5!
Glitter Rings. Another toy cheap toy you can get about 144 for around $5
Halloween Stickers. 500 of them for just under $10
Spider Rings 144 for $5-6
Crazy Eye Patch Assortment These look way fun. I would have loved to have gotten one of these at someone’s door.
Foam Gliders. Not as cheap as stickers, but much more fun!
Vampire Fangs. 144 for about $7
Zoo Animal Pencil Topppers. Very cute
Nose Pencil Sharpeners. Very appropriate for the holiday, don’t you think?
Syringe Pens. These things are awesome and very fitting for Halloween.
Monster Stress Balls. These aren’t as cheap, but if you have the budget for a little more, these would be super fun to hand out.
Now for the Glow-in-the-Dark Halloween Toys..
Do you do anything creative for your trick-or-treaters? I would love to hear your ideas!
