Trick-or-Treat Alternatives

(Tops and photo by Goose Grease)

Halloween is fast approaching and we'll soon be gearing up to hand out treats to the neighborhood kids. Tired of giving candy? There are some great candy alternatives out there to consider.
  • I love these handmade tops from Goose Grease! They are so reminiscent of vintage toys and will certainly stand out in the neighborhood! At $20 for 20, they are pretty competitive with premium candy bar pricing!
  • Back in the day my grandparents used to open their garage, put some decorations up and serve warm cider and cake donuts to the kids. They also had hot coffee for the parents and often times parents would stay warm in the garage while their kids hit a couple houses near by. It was a great way to get to know the neighbors and throw a mini halloween party.
  • Host a halloween craft in the front yard! Set up a picnic table with all the materials to make halloween colored friendship bracelets, masks, treat bags, something that doesn't take too long to put together. Put on a costume and help the kids make something themselves!
Any other ideas? Post them here and help some other people out! Have a happy and safe halloween!
