One of the best parts about Halloween is all the free candy you can get your hands on. There is this amazing activity called "Trick-or-Treating" and it consists of going door-to-door collecting free chocolate, or other treats. Usually by the time the kids are done, they have enough candy to last until next year. Why not offer a unique option for youngsters to enjoy when they stop at your door?

Here are a few alternatives to candy that you can offer for those "Trick or Treating" at YOUR house this year.

  • Fruit Snacks
  • Mini Granola Bars
  • Fruit (Apple, Orange, etc.)
  • Toothbrush, Toothpaste, or Floss
  • #2 Pencil
  • Box of Raisins
  • Stickers/Temporary Tattoos

Don't be afraid to be the house that gives out something different. Sure, the kids will rush for the candy first, but they will one day stumble upon a need for that dental floss, or pencil you threw in their bucket. Happy Halloween to all those generous enough to give of their candy, or whatever during for this timeless tradition.
