10 Awesome Candy-free Halloween Treats

Have you ever noticed that Halloween has turned into a month long celebration? When I was young, we had a Halloween party at school, then Trick or Treated that evening. Easy-peasy.

10 Awesome Candy Free Halloween Treats

Now, the entire month of October is filled with parties, pumpkin patch visits, corn mazes, fall festivals, haunted houses, All Saints Day shindigs, and more. I love having fun with our family, but by mid-October, I’ve reached my candy limit.

I want my kids to have fun, and bring things to events and gatherings, without tanking up on sugary snacks. Around here, we specialize in candy free Halloween treats, but we don’t sacrifice any fun.

Added bonus? If you have a child with food allergies, these candy alternatives are perfect.

December is one of my favorite times of year to change things up and have fun veering off our normal homeschool path. That’s why we include Christmas activities in our homeschool plans whenever possible. This holiday season we’ve stayed busy with mixed media Christmas art and Christmas Around the World. Now that those projects are winding down, we can add some other things to our December homeschool mix.


Homeschooling with Christmas carols during the holidays can be a great way to introduce new music concepts, as well as touch upon traditions.
