Candy-Free Halloween Treats

Whether you are trying to tame the sugar or avoiding sweet treats for health reasons, this candy-free list of prizes and goodies is a crowd pleaser for the tot to teen — and moms everywhere. Just think of it as less candy to throw away in a couple of weeks. 😉

If you provide non-food treats for kiddos, especially those with food allergies, be sure to register your address with the Teal Pumpkin Project. You can learn more about it in “Teal Is the New Orange” and/or check out the Tarrant County Food Allergy Moms Facebook group.
