‘Tis the season of messy chocolates, and little ones running wild through the house in costumed apparel, but we believe “furniture” and “Halloween” can belong in the same sentence.
If you’re looking to pass out something unique that will treat – rather than trick — furniture, check out these seven items and make Halloween an easy cleanup experience.
- Glow Stickers. Check your local dollar store and stock up on a variety of stickers fit
for boys and girls of all ages.
- Temporary tattoos. What child doesn’t like to decorate an arm or a leg with some faux ink?
- Party favors. Check your local store for small trinkets like yo-yos, bouncy balls or rings typically used for birthday parties. These can be a big hit and last much longer than candy.
- Furniture-approved snacks. Treats like small bags of pretzels, cheddar crackers and popcorn are popular and won’t cause for messy stains.
If you have your heart set on passing out candy, steer clear of chocolates that easily melt and will cause for some serious cleaning skills.
Halloween doesn’t have to be a disaster for your home. By switching out candy for trinkets, treasures and healthy treats, you will set a good example for your kids and not get tricked into cleaning the next day!
