Skip The Candy: 10 Alternative Halloween Treats!


Halloween traditionally is full of candy. Lots and lots of candy, and even a week before Halloween my two toddlers are already on a sugar rush from the different Halloween related events we have been to where candy has been the main treat.

While we don’t stay home and give out treats to trick-or-treaters in our area, if I did I would be skipping the candy and springing for some more alternative, healthier, and downright fun treats. Kids are going to get enough candy for the night so why not try and switch it up a little bit?

I am sure once my kids are a little bit older and I am not so focused on being super mom and we actually stay home for Halloween instead of traveling to Grandma’s house for a huge to-do, I will spring for some of these alternatives from my list!

Feel free to comment and add some of your candy alternatives you give out, or would like to give out!
