It's not too late to mix things up this year, by bringing one of many creative fruit and vegetable goodies to your spooky bash.
What about healthy ideas for children's parties? Think outside the wrapper! Consider handing out non-food items this Halloween. You can purchase many of these items for the same price as sweets. Pro tip: check out your local dollar store or hit up the party favor aisle at most department stores for bulk buys at low prices.
Here are a few non-food ideas:
- Spider rings
- Bouncy balls
- Sidewalk chalk
