would you rather??

Give out small bags of chips, doritos, cheeto's, pop--corn, and all that instead of candy for halloween?

I was thinking also of small grab--bags of those little toys given out at a birthday party. Trinkets, or rings, or whistles, .....

  • I give out small playdough. You can get a huge package at Sam's. Kids of all ages love it! And I had suckers for the little ones who were too little for the playdough.

  • As far as candy goes...we pass out chocolate...not completely bad for you and it doesn't stick to your teeth like sticky candy (think starburst or skittles) does. We also pass out stickers and things like that.

  • as long as you're not the house that hands out pennies/toothbrushes/apples, you'll be fine.
