Fun Non-Candy Halloween Classroom Treats + FREE Printable!

Posted on in Crafts/ DIY/ Holidays/ Printables

This year Justin started Kindergarten, so it’s his first time away from us and in a classroom setting. I want to make every single part of it magical and fun for him.

This year for Halloween given that he’s only in Kindergarten, I wanted to make something fun he can give out to his classroom friends! I also didn’t want to be that mom who gave out tons of candy (even though that’s what Halloween is for, right?). I decided to change it up a bit for him, and the older kids can take little bags of candy, pencils and such into their older classmates.

But for four-year-olds, I thought what a better way to celebrate Halloween than with crayons! Really fun ghosts, haunted houses, witch hats, cats, and even gravestones! Perfect for little hands on Halloween!

How cute are these? They are homemade in Halloween molds! You can use old broken crayons you have laying around, or you can buy new ones as we did! We found a bunch of 24 packs on sale for .50! So, we knew it was a sign we had to snag them up!

What you need for this project:

  • Crayons (use a good kind that works, some are very waxy and don’t show up well, we used Crayola!)
  • Cardstock paper, I buy them in bulk, here.
  • This FREE printable
  • Halloween molds, I used these ones.
  • Craft zip bags or any small snack zip-loc bags
  • Stapler
  • Scissors or paper cutter

I wanted to make a fun printable to go on the top and have it personalized because I knew Justin would appreciate it, and he does! The printable I have for your to download doesn’t have his name on it so you can personalize for your little one!

Instructions:

For the Crayons:

  1. Once you’ve got your favorite Halloween molds take the wrappers off all your crayons and break them up (the smaller, the better for melting!) place them in your molds and pop in the oven at 250 for 9-10 minutes (or until completely melted!)
  2. Remove from the oven and place in freezer for 10 minutes. Pop out of molds and your crayons are good to go. So simple!

For the Goodie Bags:

  1. Place two crayons in the goodie bags, and zip. I folded down the top of the bags as they were pretty tall, and stapled on my printable. You’ll want to leave a little bit of white around the printable to fit correctly on the bags, but they turn out super cute, and they are easy to make.
  2. Write your child’s name, in the “from” section, and they are good to go to class!

I am pretty sure parents will appreciate these more than some more candy when they’ll be getting lots on Halloween already! If you are looking for something different, fun and easy — these are perfect!

I remember getting special treats like these when I was younger, and they were fascinating. Sure, candy is exciting too it’s nice to get something different and something little kids can use!

    My son’s school is lame and they don’t do ANYTHING for Halloween. I know it’s up to the schools discretion, but come on – let kids be kids.

    I love your ideas. When my daughter was diagnosed with food allergies when she was in the 3rd grade, school socials where goody bags were involved worried me. I knew she wouldn’t be able to accept the candy that they included, and so I was always overwhelmed with joy when a mom went above and beyond and thought outside of the candy idea.

    These are so cute, and I love the way you packaged them. I’m always looking for some non-candy Halloween ideas.

    These are super cute and such a great way to use up old crayons to make something even better! The printables, “keep calm and colour on” you’ve added are the perfect finishing touch.

    Those molds are pretty awesome and they’re good use of old crayons as well. It would be nice to give these as gifts for the kids this season!

    What a fabulous idea to give away, way better than candy and that’s awesome you found the crayons for fifty cents! The printable is adorable!

    Non-candy Halloween treats are the best! Though we all know that Halloween is all about sweet treats. I LOVE THIS IDEA!

    What a cute way to personalize Halloween treats for friends and classmates! THe candy binging gets old and this is a nice twist on the traditional candy bar.

    LOL, I JUST told Robin how awesome her jack o lantern crayons would be for trick or treaters who don’t do candy. I guess it truly was a great idea! Love these!

    I would have loved these as a kid. My mom would only allow us to eat our Halloween candy on Halloween. After that it all disappeared. (We did get to keep a few things) I do remember loving the little trinkets more because I could use them after the holiday was over.

    I love the crayons, such a fun idea! I may have to make these for my son’s class!

    I love this non-candy treat! The bags turned out so adorable!

  • Reply TColeman October 19, 2017 at 12:18 pm

    These are such a great idea. The kids get given so much candy this time of year that we are normally on overload around here.

  • Reply Amber Nelson October 20, 2017 at 8:36 pm

    Those are such great ideas! Kids get way too much candy during this time of year. I like these options!

  • Reply Stephanie October 29, 2017 at 11:22 am

    What a great idea for a Halloween treat! The other parents will definitely appreciate that this isn’t just another candy treat. Fabulous idea, plus I’m sure your son had fun making them with you!
