What do you give out to trick or treaters?

I usually get a bag or two of mixed candy, but this year I'm giving out glowstick bracelets and maybe fruit snacks or something. I have no clue how many trick or treaters I will get though because I recently moved.

I wanted to see if anyone has any good ideas of things to give out!

  • We don't give out anything b/c we don't celebrate this day.

  • I get a big box of candy & a big box of "Pinata Stuffer" toys, mix them up and make little bags out of them... I usually make about 100 bags or so with $30 or so...

  • actually I'm a bit of a scrooge on that day. I hate answering my door every 2 minutes, so I either go out with my kids to avoid the door, or I let my family members answer it.

  • I usually hand out candy, stickers,and pencils. I also get a few toys for small kids and for the 2 kids in the neighborhood who are diabetic.

  • Sabrina- that sounds like a lot of work, but a good idea!

    dmbutler- I never even thought about diabetic kids! Halloween must really suck for them :( I love your ideas!

  • I love halloween! It's my favorite holiday.
    We usually pass out little bags of pretzels and other "healthy" snacks but my kids always tell me we are lame and no one will continue to come to our house if we don't have candy! LOL

    So this year, I think we are heading out to Costco for a big bag. :)

  • I usually do candy bars. Prezels and gronala bars and fruit snacks.I even last year used some flavored milk straws you can get at drugstores. I put out a box and just say help your self and it did good and had no leftovers since I took my girls out. But anything is good cause I think kids are just happy going trick and treating.
