Kids get sacks full of candy for Halloween each year, and as much as I loved that as a kid, I also loved getting something a little different in my treat bag. Here are some candy-free ideas that are still a treat.
I found some ball and paddle games in Halloween shades that had multi-colored rubber balls attached, aka witchy warts. Ick! I removed the label that was on the paddle, added a vinyl label and they were customized as a Halloween-themed favor.
Any small, roundish toy would work as Spider Eggs. I found these cool magnetic black and grey marbles, but you could also get super bounce balls. Beads, pom poms, or foam balls could also work well for crafty kids.
I used the gold cellophane bags to package the toys. To close the bags, fold the cellophane over a few times, cover with a square of purple cardstock and fold it over the top. Staple through the cardstock and cellophane fold, then cover the staple with a Halloween-themed label.
It takes just a bit of time to package these up, so you can easily get a bunch done for Halloween night! Buy the toys in bulk and it shouldn’t cost more than the candy would have. Hopefully the kids will get a kick out of these Witchy Warts, Spider Eggs, and Funny Bones.
