It’s trick or treat time! These days – whether it’s due to allergy sensitivity or cavity concerns – more families are looking for ways to let their kids to enjoy the fun of Halloween without stocking their pantry full of candy. We’ve put together a few resources to help you find the perfect, non-food treat to share at Halloween parties or trick-or-treat events.

Peruse the Party Store

Party stores are the mecca for fun favors and trinkets. So why not make a stop to your favorite party store ahead of Halloween? Here’s one idea we found on a recent visit — Bouncy (eye)Balls. A treat bowl full of bouncy, bloodshot eyeballs significantly boosts the creepiness factor of any home.

Drop by Your Local Dollar Store

You never quite know what you’ll find in stock, but there’s always a treasure trove of good fun. This is our go-to spot for stickers all year round. Make a stop here to find affordable, spooky stickers to add to a goody bag for little ones to share and swap.

Online is Easy

If you know exactly what you need, finding things online might be the fastest, most efficient way to fill your treat bucket. Here’s a sure thing this Halloween — glow sticks, glow necklaces or glow bracelets. These glow-in-the-dark accessories are always a hit, and parents love them because they help kids be more visible on a dark night of trick-or-treat fun. This online store even carries glowsticks decorated with bats and spiders.

The great thing about all of these non-candy treats is that they’re just as much fun, but help keep your smile , but keep your smile “boo-ti-ful!”
