This Non Candy Halloween Treat Idea and printable is brought to you from a partnership between myself, SheKnows and Aquafresh. This is a sponsored post.
As the Mom of twins, I have spent many hours planning Elementary School parties. When my kids were young I always enjoyed the challenge of coming up with crafts and favors for the parties that would not be too complicated to make or too expensive.
Our school as a no food policy for school parties which can make it a challenge to plan crafts and activities for some parties, especially Halloween.
I must tell you that Halloween is one of my very favorite Holidays. I love to sit on my porch, pass out candy, and watch the parade of children come by in their creative and colorful costumes.
As much as I love Halloween, I don’t really love the candy rush that comes with it. To be honest the massive amount of candy floating around the house after Halloween stresses me out a bit. I love a good chocolate bar as much as anyone else, but I never know what to do with all of the candy and it makes me feel wasteful to just throw it out.
My husband is a dentist. One of the first years that he was out of school and in practice we thought that it would be a cute idea to pass out toothbrushes instead of candy at our home for Halloween. It seemed like a great idea until one kid started hysterically crying when we gave him the toothbrush. After that we went back to candy.
A few years ago I got the idea to pass out Vampire Teeth at the school party (and at my husbands office) for Halloween. They turned out to be a big hit! To make them a bit more special, I attached a simple tag with twine and put them in a basket by the front desk at the office.
I’ve designed a new printable for the vampire teeth and you can now download a copy yourself to make your own non candy Halloween treat party favors!
To make them, simply print out the image, (I recommend using luster photo paper for a good quality print) cut out along the dashed lines, punch a small hole in the corner of the tag and tie to the vampire teeth.
That’s it, pretty easy huh!!
If you don’t want to tie them to plastic vampire teeth you can also print out the tags and tape them onto small paper bags. You can then fill them up with stickers, pencils or holiday mini erasers.
