Take-Along Snack Mix Divide this up into individual resealable snack bags for distribution.
Spice Pretzels Divide this up into individual resealable snack bags for distribution.
Dough Pretzels Make these with your kids as a fun afternoon activity. Twist into Halloween shapes such as pumpkins and cats.
Spicy Roasted Soybeans Their salty-spiciness is a welcome contrast to the sweetness of the candy.
Spooky Honey Popcorn Balls A great project for the kids. Wrap in individual wax paper bags.
Go to the local party-favor shop and get non-food items too. And, without adding more clutter! to the house, some of these are really fun for kids, and they will “use them up” with a little reminding. Some ideas include:
party-favor sunglasses or other cool toys
small cans of play-doh
noicemakers (some that blow out the roll of paper ‘without’ the whistle!)
Once your kids are back from their adventure remember to manage the candy and its consumption.
NOTE: Diet gum, candy and other man-made-chemical- aspartame -laced-”treats” are not on this list.
