Glow Sticks

Halloween and candy are synonymous, but what are you to do when you really don't want to contribute to the sugar frenzy, but still want to indulge your neighborhood trick-or-treaters? Alex gave us a good look at what not to hand out in place of candy, but now it's time to look at what alternatives to candy will be well received by trick-or-treaters ranging from toddlers to teens. And while it's certainly easy to make a healthy treat, unless you know all the kids coming to your door, most parents are more comfortable letting their kids have food items that come pre-packaged, so keep that in mind.

Glow Sticks

Glow sticks are one of the main highlights of Halloween. Not only are they fun, but they also serve a purpose in helping ghosts and goblins stay visible while trick-or-treating. Let kids choose their own color and watch as they immediately swirl them in the air or put them on as jewelry. (Bracelet Glow Sticks, $13 for 100)
