  • I bet some kids will be vocalling annoyed


  • Amazing ideas, but I hope the kids liked them if anyone tried them. Id love to hear how they went down with the trick or treaters


  • That’s a really good idea but I doubt the kids would appreciate the lack of sugar


  • Love the bouncy Ball idea. Great article


  • Great ideas


  • I always suggest non-plastic items too. SO much plastic just ends up in landfill :(
    We hand out lollies (although there is one large plastic bag they come in which we recycle), then we also have home made biscuits (no plastic) and often my kids will make halloween bats or other creepy crawlies out of cleaned toilet paper rolls.


  • We don’t have any kids trick or treating. We don’t celebrate Halloween and make sure our front light is off so no-one comes in. Need to do this as our dog has a habit of jumping up on strangers. Wouldn’t want her to jump on any kids and knock them over


  • Sometimes we get kids trick or treating.


  • I love some of these ideas. A great idea for me to get rid of some stuff too. I have just always gone the sweet treat option, but love to add this into the mix.


  • I’ve only ever given sweet treats,thanks for the ideas.Will get some balloons.My young grandkids always enjoy playing with these.


  • I can see a lot of this ended up all over the neighbourhood or just in landfill, I was hoping for something I did not need to buy,


  • Sure kids love with this ideas.


  • Some great ideas here. I will have some at hand. Whilst we don’t do Halloween, if any kids come trick or treeting I’m happy to give out what I have, usually chocolate of some sort, but some other treats are great. (saying that, our elf on the shelf does get into Halloween!!)


  • Thnak you for reminding me about it- will add some baloons.


  • Great ideas but you could also go completely radical and give out mini cheeses (I saw Halloween ones in Coles), mandarins you’ve coloured into a pumpkin face with a sharpie or excess tomato seedlings like one of my neighbours gave my kids. They loved the plant best of all.
