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

Some neighborhood parents and dentists alike will thank you for thinking outside the box! What are some of your non-food related Halloween traditions? What will you be handing out to the ghouls and goblins you see?!
