Non-candy Halloween treat options for the family

The trick or treat atmosphere that we remember as kids has changed. No longer do mom and dad scan the basket for razors or unwrapped candy. Now we need to be more conscious of the ingredients of the candy. Many schools do not allow food items to be given as treats. In our house, we try to offer some non-candy options for friends.  Luckily, there are lots of non-candy options this year.

With these concerns in mind, here are some non-candy options for your family to hand out this Halloween.

Brunswick Bowling: Visit the Brunswick Bowling website to print out FREE coupons for a game of bowling. The kids get to play and you don’t even have to spend money on trick or treating.  Click here for the coupons.

McDonalds:  Visit participating McDonald’s locations for treat books. Each book contains 12 coupons for apple dippers, ice cream cones or a milk jug. The booklets cost $1 each. The coupons can be redeemed until December 31, 2010.

Wendy’s:  Participating Wendy’s locations offer Trick or Treat books. Each book is $1 for 5 Jr. Frosty coupons. These coupons can be redeemed from 11/2/10- 2/1/11. All proceeds from the sale benefit the Dave Thomas foundation.

Play-Doh: Walmart, Target, and Costco have great deals on multi-packs of Play-Doh. The cost for multi-packages will range from $4 to $8, depending on the location and amount of containers.

Other treat options include pencils, crayons, and small toys. Walmart, Target and many dollar stores offer a variety of small trinkets for a low cost.
