DAY 6: CANDY ALTERNATIVES FOR THIS HALLOWEEN

stickersHalloween is the biggest candy holiday of the year that sends a sugar rush throughout the country.  Everyone is aware of the health implications linked to candy and for some, such as diabetics or vegans, this holiday may exclude those with food allergies or sensitivities.  This year instead of serving a pile of sugar to trick-or-treaters take into consideration some of the following items and include a sign outside that states, “Ask me for non-sugar treats.”

 – Stickers – Give out Halloween themed stickers.

 – Chalk or crayons

Sugar-free candy – A healthy alternative for everyone.

Temporary tattoos – EVERY kid wants a fake tattoo! 

Fake money – Advise the kids not to spend it all at once!  They can use this money for play time and learning purposes.

Glow Sticks – Great for safety at night during trick-or-treating.

Slime – A fun way for goblins to add to their costume.

False teeth –These are fun and can be used the same night!

Halloween printed pencils –Pencils are a necessity for all students from kindergarten throughout college. 

Fake spiders – Kids and adults love the opportunity to scare someone by mysteriously placing a fake spider on a sibling’s pillow, chair or personal area. 

Tiny plants packages – Visit your local Home Depot for these inexpensive mini plants that include a pot, soil, seeds and directions.
