If you’re interested in lessening the sugary blow on countless smiles on Halloween night, then you have come to the right blog! Fortunately, there are many things you can hand out to trick-or-treaters that won’t harm their smile or affect their trick-or-treating experience. Our dentist, Dr. Bradford Boyd, is happy to tell you all about those things, which are:

-Glow sticks: Glow sticks can brighten the night for the little trick-or-treaters, no matter if they hold them in their hands, wear them as bracelets, or wrap them around their necks like necklaces. These glow sticks can help little ones who are afraid of the dark, help parents keep an eye on their little ghosts, and even light the trick-or-treating way.

-Sugar-free gum: This is a great treat because kids love gum! As they scream “Trick or treat,” they can blow and pop bubbles with their little pieces of gum. Another benefit of gum is that as the children chew, saliva is produced. This is helpful because it can wash away the bacteria and sugar from the other Halloween treats the children are eating.

-Halloween trinkets: These little treasures can add a little fun to the trick-or-treating journey. The kids will be excited to get Halloween bouncy balls, temporary tattoos, stickers, yo-yos, invisible ink, and monster finger puppets! You can find these little trinkets at the discount store if you’re interested.
