Countdown to Halloween//Non-Candy Treat

Jack's daycare is having their Halloween party on Friday. Each parent has been asked to bring each child a little something to stick in their treat bag. I knew I wanted to do something that wasn't candy. Not only will they get plenty there but trick or treating is the very next day.

I found some very sturdy flashlights at Wal-Mart for a buck each. All the Halloween colors were gone so I went neutral with gray.

I don't own a Cricket and my printer ink has been out since this post. I used a pumpkin cookie cutter to draw out pumpkins on cardstock. I wrote "Click" or Treat on the pumpkins, punched a hole at the top, and used a green pipe cleaner to attach to the flashlight.

I'm happy with how they all turned out and I also feel happier knowing that each child will have a flashlight to take with them trick or treating.

  5. What a great idea! My kids love playing with flashlights or having them on hand so they can read in bed.
