Candy Alternatives Found in My Tot's Trick-or-Treat Bag

Candy Alternatives Found in My Tot's Trick-or-Treat Bag


The night of fright has passed, but while sorting through my kid's candy, I unearthed a couple of fun and inexpensive, non-candy items that I'll keep in mind while passing out party bags in the months ahead.

  • Jingle Bell Spider — a toy spider crafted from jingle bells, beads and ribbon that children can enjoy all year.
  • Multi-color retractable pen key-chain — the small pens are right up a lil artist's alley as they can hook the writing utensil to their backpack and not worry about toting their pencil pouch.
  • Mini-packs of pretzels — the whole wheat treat keeps kids snacking on something other than candy.
  • Placemat — the inexpensive mats keep children happy, tables clean and can be used again and again.
  • Festive cup — youngsters can use them for drinking or for storing their treasures.
  • Coloring book — provides hours of tot entertainment and artistic expression.
  • Did your child collect any candy alternatives?
