Candy, candy, candy! That’s what’s on most kids’ minds as All Hallows’ Eve creeps closer. This year, give those little goblins a fun surprise with cost-effective and unique alternatives to candy. Be a trendsetter this Halloween and pass out creative treats and toys. Who knows – you might become more popular than the house that passes out the king- sized candy bars!
Stickers are always a favorite among kids. When a dozen sheets of Halloween stickers cost less than $2, every little trick-or-treating ghoul will have a sheet to decorate folders, books, or themselves.
“I vant to suck your blood!” Between Twilight, True Blood and The Vampire Diaries, vampires are sure to be a popular costume this Halloween. Help complete the look and bring others in on the action with the perfect accessory – fangs! Sink your teeth into this – bags of 144 fangs are under $10!
Halloween-Themed School Supplies
With the school year still fresh, kids can’t get enough of cool new school supplies. Get them in the spooky spirit with a Halloween-themed pencil, pen, ruler, or fancy eraser. Not only are these practical treats to hand out, but they are cheaper than candy! Go the extra mile with this adorable pencil holder by Kim Hughes.
Kids love temporary tattoos, and when you can buy 100 of them for under $3, you will too! Halloween-themed tattoos are sure to be popular, but you could also pass out others, like local sports team logos, traditional designs, and animals. Or, make your own custom tattoos online like this one from Martha Stewart!
Glow Sticks and Necklaces
Not only will you be giving the best treat on the street, you’ll also keep the kids safe as they run around in the dark. Brighten up the streets by cracking the glow sticks into action as you hand them out. Prices may vary, but bulk purchases can be found as low as $70 for 200 pieces.
