Now unless you're the neighborhood dentist, I'd avoid handing out things like toothbrushes and dental floss. I mean it's great to teach kids good hygiene, but you also want kids to light up when they get their treats not run for the hills. Since pretty much everyone gives out candy, why not opt for something a little different?
We're an artsy family, we love anything that involves markers, crayons, stickers of crafts. Amazon has five rolls (500) Halloween stickers for $7.99. You can cut between each sticker and have kids pick out a few. Kids also love those fake tattoos, especially those skull and cross bones that look cool. Party City sells some online. Oh, and this will apply to the bigger kids that are already over the stickers that they loved just a year ago.
When in doubt, visit Oriental Trading Company. From glow in the dark vampire fangs to a Mega Halloween Assortment bag and Halloween pencils, your house will not only be a heart healthy stop, but these treats will last longer than one bite and a tummy ache. Besides, I'm sure your kids and all those in the neighborhood will have plenty of candy from every other house in the hood.
