It’s that time of year. School is in full swing, the leaves are changing, and the kids… are ready to see the dentist after gorging themselves on Halloween candy?!?
Halloween is such a fun time of year for kids. It’s supposed to be scary! But for parents of kids with food allergies or even parents who like to limit, “scary” takes on a new meaning.
Whether your kids have food allergies or just want to cut down on the candy, this list of ten+ non-candy Halloween treats is a fun way to celebrate Halloween without sending your kids into candy-comas.

If you’re looking to keep things simple or put together just a few goodie bags, check out this mega pack of assorted Halloween toys.
But if you want to get creative, read on for 10+ ideas to fill a Halloween goodie bag or pass out to trick-or-treaters!
Pencils and erasers
These super cute pencils and erasers are perfect for preschool and elementary-aged kids.
If you’re buying pencils for a class party, I added this 48-pack of pencils to my Subscribe & Save account to get them at a discount.
I also found this huge pack of Halloween erasers if you need a lot.
My kids love to play with themed bath toys.
We use these Halloween-themed rubber ducks year-round. They do have holes in the bottom, so make sure the kids squirt out the water at the end of their baths, though!
Kids love playing dress up, even when it’s not Halloween.
These foam Halloween masks aren’t too scary for littler kids. Plus, they can decorate the foam with markers to make them scarier (or cuter). 😉
From miniature skateboards to puppets, finger toys can provide hours of entertainment for kids.
Depending on your kids’ ages, there are so many finger toys to choose from. My daughter especially likes these finger puppets, which are perfect (less-scary) for younger kids.
It’s always fun to start reading seasonal books before the holiday to help kids prepare for (and understand) the holiday. They’re also great to teach kids about seasons and when they can expect each holiday, like Halloween in Fall, once the leaves start changing color.
I love these “make a jack-o-lantern” sticker packs, but my kids have also tried these cute wooden packets.
Halloween activity books are also a fun alternative – perfect for a rainy day activity.
Tattoos and stickers
Kids love tattoos and stickers, even when Halloween is long past. If you have lots of trick-or-treaters, this pack of 500 stickers would be perfect!
Especially if your kids love making art projects, these stamps are a fun way to decorate and add a Halloween flair to their artwork.
Some of the scary bouncy balls might be a little too much for littler kids, but my kids love these glow-in-the-dark eyeballs.
For younger kids, these Halloween-themed bouncy balls might be a better choice – even the spiders are smiling.
As you’re putting together your Halloween treats, don’t forget to buy goodie bags! These bags are adorable (and they come in packages of 72, so you can make them for your kids’ class parties or pass them out to all your trick-or-treaters).
