Fun Alternatives To Halloween Candy

Halloween is approaching quickly, which means many small (and sometimes big) trick-or-treaters will roam the streets in search of candy! But, as we all know, sugar is rough on our bodies, particularly on our oral health. A diet high in sugar contributes to dental cavities and tooth decay.

In addition, there are many children these days with food allergies. It’s difficult to make them feel included when there are so many types of food and candies that they can’t have.

Halloween Candy Alternatives

Below is a list of non-food items you can pass out on Halloween night to make sure everyone is healthy and happy:

  • Stickers
  • Pencils
  • Glow Sticks
  • Temporary Tattoos
  • Mini Play-Doh tubs
  • Erasers
  • Mini Slinkies
  • Bubbles
  • Pencil Toppers
  • Fake Plastic Bugs
  • Spider or Skill Rings
  • Bouncy Balls
  • Mini Bottles of Nail Polish
  • Matchbox Cars
  • Plastic Vampire Fangs
  • Whistles

There are so many fun (and much cheaper) ways to participate in Halloween festivities without even one single bag of candy. Help keep your kids and the children in the neighborhood healthy and included with some items from our list or ideas of your own.
