For Halloween, there are some simple,
replacements for "Trick or Treat" candy holders.
The most obvious is that paper bag you received
at the grocery store. Easily transform it into a fun candy
holder by adding hand-colored images. There are many
coloring pages offered on the internet that can be colored, cut
out and glued to the front, back and sides of the bag. Let
your kids help you add
ribbons and personal enhancements to make a one-of-a-kind bag.
If you can sew, creating a cloth or canvas bag
is very simple to do. To accessorize, find a coloring page you
can use as a template for an appliqué that you can sew or glue to
the bag. If you're not that creative, grocery stores offer
reusable canvas bags at a minimal cost. These sturdy bags will
let the kids get a huge bounty of candy on Halloween.
Older kids who aren't into "fancy" are usually
very satisfied with a pillow case. And best of all, when the
holiday ends and all of the candy is gone, you can throw the pillow
case into the washer and use it again next year.
If you have a little money and you're inspired to
"Go Green" for Halloween, the internet offers a wide
variety of reusable candy holders?
You can help save the environment as you collect your "treats".
Just remember, no matter what
you decide to use as a candy holder, keep it safe and fun.
