Kids love Trick or Treating, even those with food allergies and diabetes. That’s why the Teal Pumpkin Project, which promotes the giving of toys instead of candy at Halloween, encourages everyone to think of fun spooky ideas that aren’t candy this year. Here are 8 top suggestions for fun non-candy Halloween gifts that are sure to make every child smile, even those with diabetes!
A fantastic addition to any costume, kids will love these light-up treats that give a spooky glow to any outfit. Really cost-effective to purchase, you can buy a tube containing 100 from Amazon for only $10, and each one will glow for up to 12 hours!
Minions are the latest big news in the kids’ world, and minion-inspired goggles are a brilliant diabetes friendly Trick or Trick gift. Alternatively, Minions pencils, bouncy balls, rubber bracelets and stampers can be bought inexpensively that will brighten up the kids’ night.
Halloween themed erasers make a great alternative to sweets when Trick or Treaters knock on your door. Geddes supply mini-erasers that feature Halloween shapes like ghosts, witches or goblins, or eraser-topped pencils with different Halloween themed designs.
Even teenagers will love Gnarly Teeth, which are vinyl teeth that fit over your own set for an instant spooky transformation. They’re only suitable for ages 12 and up, so if your Trick or Treaters are younger kids, glow-in-the-dark vampire fangs are the ideal accessory to their Halloween dress-up.
Kids love bouncy balls, and eyeball shaped ones or glow-in-the-dark varieties are ideal for Halloween.
Everyone gets hours of fun out of Silly Putty. With its cool egg-shaped holder, it’s bouncy, squishy, and makes a fun snapping sound. Choose any of the amazing colors, or even glow-in-the-dark for an extra Halloween edge.
Nothing says Halloween quite as much as some scary bugs and beasts! Plastic spiders, spider rings, and fake creepy crawlies of all shapes and sizes make fun Halloween treats.
Kids love mustaches, and they’re a fun dress-up accessory. Mr Moustachio’s mustaches come in all kinds of varieties from a tiny Charlie Chaplin style to a bushy Mario Bros.! Kids will love choosing one so much that they’ll never miss the candy!
