It’s almost halloween which means it’s time for trick-or-treat bags! I got these ready for Tuesday night since Monday is a busy day. Last year we only had two kiddos, yet we’ve had a house go for sale in the area and I have no idea if they have zero or 9 children. Basically, I want to be prepared. Plus, having a couple of leftover treats isn’t a bad thing, right?
Trick or Treat Bags
First, stop at the Dollar Store. Here, the trick is to NOT buy the halloween candy. You can see all the prices below and the small bag of halloween candy was priced around 3-4$, that’s too much. All of this, including the bags, cost me $16.00. I made 8 bags and I’ve got about 9 ‘extra’ single items just incase we get a few handful of trick-or-treaters.
I lay out all the goodness that way I can make each bag fair and square.
Fill the clear bags with all the treats. I like using clear bags, mainly because then you can see everything so nicely. I got popcorn again this year because one of the kiddos that stopped by our house last year was so excited “Wow – popcorn, really? So cool.” The second reason I use clear bags is because you can use them for anything, not just treat bags.
Use some colourful ribbon and tie them up.
All ready for our trick-or-treaters. We’ll be home this year and handing out candy is part of the fun.
Happy Halloween and I hope you have a spook-tacular weekend!
