I usually buy too much candy leading up to Halloween. And by “too much” I mean enough that we eat our fair share before the holiday even hits. My major weakness are the little Kit Kats. I used to really love the tiny peanut butter cups but apparently my taste buds have changed or something. I still love 100 Grand though…
*tummy rumbles as she types*
*plans to hit grocery store after publishing this*
But you know, there are other things that could be handed out on Halloween night. And some of these will be no big deal once it gets dark because kids will not be able to see what it is anyway. Just make sure they do not have a flashlight or glow stick. Pro Tip right there.
Y’all are going to want to pin this one…. trust me…
Old cell phones chargers not included.
single socks I have an entire bag and in cute colors too!
McDonald’s/other fast-food restaurant toys I’m serious about this one!
The Dreaded Apple self-explanatory. But healthy!
Post-It notes with inspirational quotes I am a writer after all…
Pens I have picked up/been given at conferences Except the ones with the built-in highlighters. Keep those.
Other undesirable “swag” off to check my closet for the stuff I never used. Expired Go-Go Squeeze anyone?*
K-cups with yucky flavors. Because kids TOTALLY need caffeine! WHEE!
Single LEGO pieces, then the kids in the ‘hood can get together and build something cool. 🙂
Popsicles What? They’re not candy…
Twizzlers. Also not candy. Okay, technically I guess they are but they’re like only one molecule away from being plastic. At least that’s what my tastebuds tell me. I’m no scientist.
Buttons. Someone can always use an extra button, right? (PSA on this one, no needles, needles bad. JUST buttons)
Crayons. Everyone likes to color.
Spider rings. This is a no-brainer.
Roasted pumpkin seeds. Oh my gosh, no way. That’s gross.
What else would you hand out on Halloween night besides candy?
*I would never actually intentionally give anyone expired food. What kind of monster do y’all think I am?
