Giving the Trick or Treaters a treat

October 27, 2014

With Halloween approaching it is time to start preparing about what tricks or treats that I will give to the trick or treaters this year. I don’t believe in being one of those families who turn off all the lights and sit in the dark just so nobody will knock on the door. Instead I like to embrace Halloween and stock up on some treats to give out at the door.

Halloween doesn’t have to cost the earth so a trip to my local Poundland allows me to stock up on all I need to ensure I am giving the Trick or Treaters a treat.

Giving the Trick or Treaters a treat


Handing out treats isn’t just a case of holding out a bag of sweets, personally I like to offer the choice so adding sweets and treats to a selection of cauldrons, bowls or even pre-filled candy pumpkins.

Swizzles Halloween Treats


Sweets are an individual choice, what one child likes might not be what another likes so I love to offer a range of sweetie treats. Along side the sweets I offer apples and satsumas and it really surprising to see just how many children opt for the fruit instead of the sweets.

Do you offer sweet treats for Trick or Treaters?

    You’re going to be mighty popular on Halloween with that stash of sweets on offer! I love it too – this year is our first year having Halloween in our village after moving here last December. Apparently it’s a big deal in the village and all the kids go around trick or treating, with a party in the village hall afterwards. I’m as excited as my 4 year old!

      I miss living in a community that really gets together and celebrates together, I can remember having such fun as a child as we visited all our neighbours.

      I hope you enjoy your first Halloween in your village, don’t eat too many sweets

    It’s my boys first year trick or treating this year so we probably won’t be in for the early trick or treaters, not that I’m planning on being out long in the dark and cold!
    We decorate the front room for halloween, as much as we do for christmas! The kids absolutely love it!

    I use Poundland for most of our decorations and the sweets for the trick or treaters! It’s great to be able to make it fun for the kids without spending a ridiculous amount!

      I love the idea that you decorate as much as you would for Christmas, I might need to pop back to Poundland and bag a few decorating treats
