If you’re like me, you’ve been searching for an alternative to giving away gobs of sugar and candy to trick or treaters on Halloween. And, like me, you probably also have a significant other who thinks you’re crazy. I have a very good reason for wanting to give away toys instead of candy though:

  1. The kids will get PLENTY of candy from other houses
  2. Toys last longer than candy and keep the Halloween fun going for weeks
  3. I won’t be tempted to eat the leftovers… you know, the candy left in the bowl in between knocks on the door 😉
  4. I can save the leftovers for next year without worrying that they will go bad (or get eaten before Thanksgiving)
  5. A lot of parents will be happy to see one less piece of candy in their child’s trick or treat bag
