5 Budget Halloween Party Favor Ideas

        Culture | Halloween


If you're spending time whipping up a party menu, why not spend a little extra time making special treats to send home with your guests? Enlist your kids' help with ideas and decorations. Decorate caramel apples or ghostly cookies, wrap candy corn or roasted pumpkin seeds in orange and black wrapping or usher in the beginning of the winter season by sending guests home with a small container of homemade cocoa mix and a little bag of mini marshmallows.

Take note, though, that giving out homemade foods to trick-or-treaters is a waste -- most parents will throw away any unwrapped or homemade foods for safety concerns.
