Crayons – Again, younger children will like getting crayons. You can actually buy packs that contain small boxes of crayons. They can be found at Walmart and just about any party store. You could go one step further and provide a mini coloring book with the crayons, or even just a blank notepad of paper. Bundle them together.
4. Mini bubbles – Kids love bubbles. You can find these mini bottles of bubbles at Walmart of party stores. They are fairly inexpensive. You may want to tape the tops closed, or place in a baggie or treat bag to ensure the bubble soap does not leak while the child finishing making their rounds around the neighborhood.
5. Mini Play-doh – These are great and kids love them. You can find these again at Walmart or your party store. The internet is also a good place to find these. They come in packages in a variety of colors.
There are many other ideas that you can use in place of candy. Check out your local party store and look at the novelty items they carry, you may find these may not be much more, if any more, expensive then buying bags and bags of candy.
