I decided last year to hand out things that kids could enjoy longer than the 20 seconds it takes to open a candybar and inhale it.
Target had some great Halloween items to pass out last year. I got Halloween gliders there for a decent price... sticky frogs, bracelets. They had a bunch of other things, but
I also passed out mini things of Halloween Play-Doh-- which I'd like to do again if the price is right.
... and this year, I splurged on 1k glowbracelets after having kids peer into my witch cauldron which was glow-stick lit and ask if they could HAVE my glowsticks. I ordered them really cheap at http://illuminationz.com/
and they shipped super fast! Course... I only have 998 now because my husband and I had to play. *angelic grin*
... so those are my "bizzare" items that I pass out. So much better than candy too.
