Check out these alternatives to candy. You still have time to get these delivered to your home thanks to Amazon! “Alexa, order me some emoji bracelets”!
Slime ~ Your children will enjoy making a batch of homemade slime that they divvy out and give to trick-or-treaters this year. At a very low cost, you can make a large amount that can be broken down into Ziploc bags or cheap containers. This is a super mom win!
Clementines ~ Now this is a treat that boosts immune systems and makes every mom smile.

Non-GMO Variety snack packs ~ Alert, this is a super mom pick! Nothing says I care about your children to your neighbors like handing out treats like these!
Toy airplane gliders ~ Not only is it not sugar laden, but it will get kids up and moving as they challenge each other to glider competitions.
Glow in the dark Bouncy Balls ~ These are fun to bounce around on trick-or-treat night from house to house and provide hours of entertainment at little cost.
Glow sticks ~ The instant gratification treat! Your trick-or-treaters can snap these and enjoy them on a dark trick-or-treat night as they go door-to-door.
Bubbles ~ You can never have too many bubbles and they have a great shelf life too!
Emoji Bracelets ~ What kid doesn’t love emojis? This may be the most popular item and could become a trading piece among the trick-or-treaters.
