How to Have a Healthy Halloween with Non-Candy Treat Ideas

Halloween is just around the corner! And for most of us, this means small pirates, princesses and ghosts lining our doorstep looking for a treat. Trick-or-treat is a great time to get some exercise with your family. If you’ll be out “(s)troll-ing” the streets this Halloween, dress appropriately for the weather (sweatshirt, raincoat, etc) and make yourself visible to all passers-by, wear light colored clothing or reflectors if your costume is dark in color, and carry a flashlight!

Treats come in all shapes and sizes, don’t limit yourself to passing out sugary confections next week. Some ideas for non-candy treats include:

  • Stickers
  • Glow sticks/necklaces
  • Pencil toppers or erasers
  • Bubbles
  • Play dough
  • Finger paints
  • Halloween themed costume jewelry, hats
  • Temporary tattoos
  • Crayons or colored pencils
  • Silly straw
  • Mini lip balm
  • Keychain
  • Bouncy balls
  • Slinky
  • Sidewalk chalk
  • Glow-in-the-dark stars
