How about taking white tissue and tying around the top of the suckers (tying with a small white ribbon). Then with a black pen or marker, drawing little scary or happy faces on them, to make ghosts â˜º It would only cost you a bag of suckers, a box of tissues and white ribbon (you can buy just about anywhere for only .50 more or less). You're son would have fun helping you also.
You and your son could also make a candy card like a Valentine's card. Draw up some spiders, ghosts or anything else, then color them and add the candy to it. You could four cards out of one piece of paper depending on how big you make the cards. Just tape the candy to them and maybe add a saying like "you're spooky cool!" or something like that. There's nothing cooler than a handmade card.
You could try asking my Penny Pinchers group, those girls have some very cool ideas for cheap. Good luck and have fun!!
