Mix Things Up with Over 100 Non-Candy Halloween Treat Ideas.

Offer Traditional Treats and Add Non-Candy Treats As An Option.

October 13, 2019


Halloween is one of those holidays where your kids can get so much candy it's overflowing out of their bags. I try to find alternatives to the candy treats with non-candy treat options. I even have some great non-candy treats to trade my kids for the bulk of their candy (which then goes to work with dad, a dentist office for the troops, or the Switch Witch comes to swap out the extra for a gift!).

Here are over 100 ideas for those looking for alternatives. These can be used if you have many kids, few kids or even just one or two special kids. I  know some families use some of these for Trunk or Treats too!
