👻 Treat Box Ideas
I know your first thought for a Halloween Treat Box filler is candy. And you’re right! Kids are crazy for it! You can use any kind of candy you think the kids would love. Think about small chocolate bars, gummies, and Jolly Ranchers. The list is practically endless since we have an overwhelming variety anyway. I’m sure that as a parent you are well aware of your children’s favorite sweets and snacks so you won’t be lacking inspiration.
Nevertheless, Halloween is a time of year when it’s so easy for children to overeat sweet treats, and going for non-candy gifts may be a sensible solution that will bring them just as much joy minus the cavities.
🪀 Non-Candy Ideas
Filling your cute treat boxes with non-candy gifts will ensure trick-or-treaters don’t stuff themselves with too much sugar on All Hallows’ Eve. It’s also a great way to make sure those with food allergies or sensitivities don’t get left out.
Here are some fun stuffers you can use to fill this:
- Mini Play-Doh
- Glow in the dark slime
- Spooky temporary tattoos
- Mini flashlights
- Halloween stamps
- Slap bracelets
- Halloween-themed erasers
- Vampire fangs
- Glow sticks
- Light-up necklaces
- Stretchy skeletons
- Halloween Glasses
- Mini yo-yos
- Matchbox cars
- Bouncy balls
- Halloween stamps
- Mini fidget-spinners
- Spider rings
📒 How To Use The Printable
Now that you have a plan and a list of ideas it’s time to craft some fun pillow boxes to put those cool gifts in.
Step 1 – Print the Halloween Treat Box template on cardstock.
Note: Printing on regular printing paper will not work well. You really need a thicker paper to provide the stiffness to get the ends to fold in and hold its shape.
Step 2 – Carefully cut out the box.
Step 3 – Using the dotted lines as a guide, score and fold your treat box.
Step 4 – Glue into place on the marked side.
Step 5 – Fill with goodies!
Step 6 – Seal the box by folding over the curved sides.
