When I was a kid, I’d go to my Gramma Polly’s house the week before Halloween and help her stuff treat bags to hand out to all of the trick-or-treaters. In my mind, I did this every year and stuffed tons of bags. In reality, I probably helped her a few times and judging by my enthusiasm for stuffing Halloween treat bags as an adult, I’m guessing I didn’t actually stuff all that many for Gramma Polly.
But it’s a strong memory of mine. She lived in a normal neighborhood (compared to my semi-rural childhood home in a neighborhood of few children, which meant Very Few Trick-or-Treaters), and we would often go to her house to trick-or-treat after hiking around our own neighborhood (and up really long driveways spaced very far apart!).
Side note: the upside to our trick-or-treating experience was that most homeowners knew they’d be lucky to see even four kids trick-or-treating, so instead of buying a big bag of candy they’d often buy full-sized candy bars, which was AWESOME.
Another random side note: one year my mom gave out toothbrushes and crayons to trick-or-treaters, and all three of them made fun of me at school the next day because LAME.
But I digress! I loved going to my grandmother’s house on Halloween, and I loved getting one of her treat bags, stuffed to the brim with Smarties, Snickers, and Dubble Bubble. It was THE BEST.
With two kids in school and Halloween parties that require them to bring treats for all the kids, I’ve got my work cut out for me (OH! And I have TOTALLY sent crayons and other non-candy goodies to these events, so…I see where my mom was coming from that one fateful Halloween).
All that to say…I made these cute little Halloween Treat Bags, and I’m sharing the printable with you here today! 🙂
You can download your free printable “Have a Nice Bite!” Treat Labels here. I made these for Halloween, but they’d also be great for a monster party, too!
