Folks used to give out candy by the handfuls and you didn’t have to worry about checking it for scary things, either. To bring some fun, anticipation and excitement back to Halloween, I think treat bags would be a great idea, don’t you?
Halloween Treat bags or loot bags are just like the party favor bags we give out at birthday parties. A couple of little toys or gifts and some candy in some cute Halloween gift bags and you’ll have a kid that can’t wait to see what’s in the bag! I bet your own kids would love to help you assemble some bags that they can also help give out on Halloween.

Halloween treat bags are also fun for school parties and neighborhood carnivals. More fun to make than baking cupcakes…well, close anyway.

Halloween treat bags make the perfect party favor for a Halloween party or you can give them out to all the little ghosties & goblins that come to trick or treat on Halloween night. Since you can include some small toys in the treat bags, you can help reduce how much sugar the kiddies get at least a little!
First, decide how many Halloween treat bags you want to make and get your treat bags bought. You’ll also need some orange or black twist ties or curling ribbon to close the bags with.
Then, look through these Halloween treat bag ideas to see what kinds of toys or small gifts you want to include in the Halloween treat bags. They can be Halloween-themed, or not ~ that will be up to you, since the bags should be Halloween bags.
Now, double-check your bags to make sure they will hold the toys or gifts you chose plus the candy. You want to be able to close the bag, but you don’t want it to look too empty either.

Your Halloween treat bags will be the talk of the neighborhood when you include a couple of small toys per Halloween treat bag. Buying bulk small toys for your Halloween treat bags is also a great way to make a large number of them for church parties & festivals, school classroom parties, neighborhood celebrations, etc.
Assembling Your Halloween Treat Bags
Gather together all the small gifts & toys, candy and Halloween bags, along with the curling ribbon or twist ties, so you can begin assembling the treat bags. Decide ahead of time how many toys and how many candies will go in each bag.
Kids can have a lot of fun putting the bags together for you. All you have to do is supervise to make sure they put the correct number of everything in each bag. One child can fill the bags and another can close the bags; then they can switch back and forth.
If we don’t have kid-power to help assemble the bags–that’s ok too. Turn on the TV or some music and line up your goodies assembly line style and go for it. I like to put mine in a big basket to keep by the door. Perhaps you have a cauldron or other candy bowl for Halloween night. You can put the bags in there as you finish them.
