Candy Alternatives For Classrooms

Unlike most people, I think if you don’t want your kids to get candy, don’t take them trick-or-treating. With that said, the classroom doesn’t always want or need anymore candy.  It is hard for me to come up with good alternatives, because a lot of the other “Made in China” junk gets tossed at our house. Here are a few ideas that might work in your mad scramble to send it treats for Thursday.

Finger Flashlights are a great little treat for classrooms. I ordered them off Amazon, but I have seen them in a 4-pack at Dollar Tree.

Plastic skeletons are fun.

Pretzels, gummies, pencils and leftovers from birthday party gift bags always work too. Just remember one man’s treat is another man’s junk.
