40+ Unique and Non-Candy Ideas For Minnesota Trick-or-Treaters
Are you looking for a few ideas on what to hand out for Halloween? If my kids are coming to your house in Minnesota, I recommend Reese's Peanut Butter Cups because, well, I eat a few of theirs with the "Mom Tax" that I've implemented for all candy-heavy holidays. But, if you've been looking for some "candy-free" options, below are LOTS of ideas to help you out this Halloween.
🎃 FYI - there is an amazing house in Rochester, Minnesota with over 130 inflatables you MUST visit this year. We've got the address and a few of the photos below.
Check Out These 40+ Non-Candy Ideas for Trick-or-Treaters
I know kids want candy on Halloween but let's be honest, they get way too much. Throwing something else in the buckets that isn't chocolate wouldn't be a horrible thing. In fact, some kids might even appreciate something they can use rather than getting a handful of Tootsie Rolls.
If you are looking for a few non-candy items to pass out this year for Halloween, below are a few ideas that kids have mentioned they'd be ok getting in their bucket:
- Post-it notes
- New set of markers
- Coloring book
- Finger paint
- Scented markers
- Glitter markers
- Washi tape
- Moon sand
- Rolls of duct tape (for duct tape creations!)
- Friendship bracelet kit
- Notecards, stamps & addresses to their bff's
- Little garden kits. Find these at dollar stores or even places like Target...they come with a little planter and seeds.
- Water balloons
- New Socks
- Lip gloss
- Nail polish
- Hand sanitizer that smells good
- Colored hair gel
- Bandaids with their favorite characters on them!
- Matchbox cars
- Lego's (there are some small packages that would fit great in a basket!)
- Bouncy ball
- Whoopie cushion
- Trading cards - pokemon, baseball or football cards
- Magnifying glass
- pennies, nickels, dimes or quarters (it's probably cheaper than buying candy this year!)
- New book
- Water bottle
- Glow sticks
- Recorder or a harmonica (they both make the same type of noise)
