Your party guest and kids of all ages will have so much fun with all these small gifts.
When thinking about handing out candy for Halloween in years gone by, not many neighbors thought about allergies kids may have or that perhaps they can’t have sugar. I know they didn’t give us anything but candy growing up when we went trick or treating.
This is a great way to avoid that, you’ll be the most popular house for the Halloween holiday with these Halloween favors.
That is why you might think about giving away other treats instead of candy to your trick or treaters.
Here are 14 alternative non-candy Halloween treat ideas or things you can add to make up easy DIY Halloween treat bags that your children and other kids will be sure to enjoy!
Pick up some Halloween-themed bottles of bubbles or another great idea is to grab some plain white bottles and decorate them yourself with themed stickers as a fun Halloween craft project.
2. Glow Sticks
Glow sticks would be awesome, and they can use them while they trick or treat. They will not only be a fun way to help them to stay visible, but they are also fun to be used as necklaces or bracelets too, not only that they make perfect party favors, too.
Who doesn’t love stickers? These can be used to decorate notebooks, mugs, tumblers, walls, and toys! And if you’re my grandchildren – the kitchen floor… 👀 For goody bags, I put them on top of the bag. This is a better way for little kids to see them.
Stampers are lots of fun for the kids. They’ll love taking them to school and sharing them with friends. My grandkids love the little ghost ones.
For more Halloween crafts, you can use the stamps on brown paper bags to make monster bags. I use them for goodie bags, or you could use them for your kid’s lunches.
Throw in some non-Halloween stampers, too, and the trick or treaters can use them any time of the year.
Kids love temporary tattoos! These are great treats and adorable party favors for your Halloween treat bag ideas. They are colorful, fun, and safe for use.
Microwavable popcorn packages are great for those Halloween movie marathons. They are small and won’t take up too much space in their Halloween loot bags!
You can also decorate them with stickers or stamps. You can do this for any of your favorite holidays.
Pencils are simple treats but they will surely come in handy, especially during school!
8. Snack Bags
A lot of stores are selling prepackaged fruit snacks, pretzels, Goldfish, and cookies, or if you can’t find them, you can make these snack bags on your own. These adorable bags are a great addition to your Halloween gifts. My favorite is the bat treat bag.
Give away some spooky accessories like plastic spider rings, fake vampire teeth or glow-in-the-dark sticky eyes.
10. Mini Play-Doh
Kids will love this! You can make your own homemade Play-Doh and place them in mini containers or buy a bundle from Amazon.
11. Silly Straws
These Silly Straws will definitely be a hit!
12. Bouncing Balls
These bouncing balls are mini balls with unique designs that the kids will be amused by!
13. Finger Puppets
Adorable toys that kids will love. You can choose from Halloween-themed designs or you can also find non-Halloween themed ones.
14. Pocket Change
If you are in need of a last-minute treat or your non-candy treats were a hit and you don’t have any left, turn to your change jar. Kids will be delighted to have some extra money to add to their piggy banks!
Trick or treat doesn’t mean you just need to give away candy! There are a lot more fun treats that kids will enjoy.
