1. Pencils – In my teaching days, fun designs were always a much sought after item in my classroom, and they are sure to go quickly on Halloween as well.
2. Stickers – Grab a few sheets and cut them up into individual stickers or rows for little ones to sort through.
3. Erasers – Fun Spider Man or other character-themed erasers are sure to excite little Super Heros at your doorstep.
4. Crayon Packs – You might be surprised to find pre-packaged Halloween-themed mini packs in your store’s Halloween aisles.
5. Individual Play-Doh – Check out your local bulk store as you might be able to find reasonably priced mini Play-Doh containers.
6. Starbursts or Jellybeans – Or, a combination of the two (see below) as will be found in one of my treat bowls this year.
7. Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses – While not free of all allergens, Hershey’s Kisses (plain variety) typically do not share production lines with peanuts or tree nut products. Still, do be sure to read the labels carefully.
8. Fruit Snack Packs – Another non-chocolate option without many of the most common allergens.
9. Mini Chip Bags (Assorted Varieties) – Likely to be popular with the older kids…and you all know they will be knocking on your door dressed as a “teenager” again this year.
10. Mini Popcorn Bags – Another salty option to go with all those sweets.
