65+ Non-Candy Halloween Goodies to Hand Out

Don’t want to be part of the sugar rush for Halloween? Here’s some ideas for non-candy Halloween treats and favors to hand out. And don’t worry… these ideas are just as sweet!



1. Glow Bracelets & Necklaces

Who doesn’t love glowing at night? Plus, it’s an AWESOME way for kids to stay safe (and stylish!) while walking around at night. Check out this super cute glow stick idea with a free printable from Just Add Confetti.

2. Crayons

Add a little bit of color to their Halloween bucket! If you’ve got time, you can use recycled crayons and mold them into spooky Halloween shapes (check these out from Young Wild Me Family Blog) or you can buy mini Halloween-themed crayon boxes in bulk.

4. Slime

Along with play dough, kids also really love squishy, gooey slime! Your trick-or-treaters will definitely be eyeing this Witch’s Brew Halloween Slime from Little Bins for Little Hands.

5. Halloween Necklace Kit

Let them get crafty and make their own beaded Halloween necklace from Bebe and Bear. It’ll distract them (hah, for a few minutes) from rolling around in all their candy when they get home. Note: Supervise young kids with small items.

6. Fruit

But don’t just go with plain ol’ fruit, it’s Halloween! We’ve got to make it cute. Here’s a super easy way to disguise (er, dress up) an apple as Frankenstein from Non-Toy Gifts… or try a jack-o-lantern face with an orange!

7. Bubbles

Bubbles are always a fun choice. Buy them in bulk or find them at most dollar stores. Add this cute tag from The Happy Housie and you’re set!

8. Mini Beach Ball

Or any ball really, but mini beach balls are our favorites. They come in a variety of fun designs and they don’t cause too much damage when tossed around the house. They’re a little pricier than candy though, so maybe just have a few on-hand to give to that special trick-or-treater that waits patiently for his/her treat.

9. Pencils & Erasers

These would be great for classroom Halloween goodies… perfect for students to get their writing on. Check out Just Add Confetti‘s free printable to make these adorable black cat pencils.
