Witching hour will soon be here. Our mini ghosts and goblins are almost ready to terrorize the city. Due to food allergies or sensitivities, some of our little princesses and pumpkins may not be able to enjoy the yummy treats that are normally given out on All Hallows Eve.  Trick or treating candy alternatives can be found at your local stores such as Target and Walmart but also by shopping online at stores like Oriental Trading and Amazon.

Each year, children look forward to fun-sized candies, costumes, and all things scary. This year, why not mix it up and provide more than just treats that will stick to their teeth. Non-Candy treats can be just as fun and candy. To get you started, I’ve found ten items that our little scarecrows will adore receiving this year.

You’ll have a spooktacular time passing out these fun treats this Halloween! 

  1. Glow-in-the-Dark Eyeball Slime  
    Eyeballs and slime…Probably the coolest item on the list!
  2. Maze Puzzles 
    Maze puzzles will keep kiddos entertained for hours.

    The plush characters are a great treat for those who don’t want to spook their little visitors.
  4. Bubbles   
    Every kid loves blowing bubbles!
  5. Spider Rings 
    Creepy crawlies attached to the finger make for the perfect addition to any costume.
  6. Slap Bracelets
    Do you remember how much you loved slap bracelets?

    Give them a treat that will last beyond Halloween day.
