For edible treats try individually-packaged applesauce, peanut butter crackers, pretzels or goldfish crackers, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds or peanuts. Better yet, how about an old-fashioned apple or orange?

How about taking mini-size bottles of water and decorating them to look like jack-o-lanterns? Glue green felt onto the lid and a strip of orange felt around the body of the bottle. Glue on black felt eyes, nose and mouth. Tie a green ribbon around the neck for the vine and voila! A jack-o-lantern bottle of water.

No matter what you come up with to give your favorite trick-or-treaters, making choices that will cut down on sugar and candy will help keep them from becoming little monsters!
