Handing out treats for trick or treat this year?  Still at a loss for what to hand out?  GLEE Gum has some tasty, 100% natural candies that will make both parents and kids happy!

The fun GLEE Gum gum pops come in a 15 counts bag with 3 different flavors: Sweet Strawberry, Crisp Green Apple, and Juicy Orange.  These pops are yummy and colorful.

Keep Your Trick or Treater Safe with These Tips

I received items at no cost from Oriental Trading to help facilitate this post. No other compensation has been received. Any opinions expressed are my own. 

My two oldest boys are teens. They are at the stage where they’re too cool to go trick or treating with mom and dad but still want to go trick or treating. This year, as they have the past couple years, they’re going trick or treating with groups of friends.  That doesn’t mean I don’t still worry about them.

My husband and I will be taking our 2 youngest children and my 3 nieces trick or treating with us.  Keeping an eye on 5 little ones in the dark always has be in hyper helicopter mom mode too. So how do I keep my kids safe and help hubby and I keep track of 5 little ones? Here’s my tips:


For the teens:

  1.  Know who they will be trick or treating with and where
  2.  Have them check in via cell phone.  Send a picture of where they are at when they check in.
  3.  Identify a pick up spot and time.
  4.  If not wearing light colored costumes have reflective or glow-in-the dark accessories like these from Oriental Trading:

5.  Give them a flashlight like the mini one from Oriental Trading above. They can wear it around their neck to help them on poorly lit steps, sidewalks, and road ways.

6.  Review safety rules like only going to familiar areas, avoid places they are not comfortable with, stay with the group.  Remind them about checking candy before eating. If anything is open or looks tampered with throw it away.  Any strange looking candies show to an adult first.


For the Little ones:

  1.  Have them wear glow-in-the dark or reflective accessories that match such a glow in the dark bracelet on the right arm in the same color.  It helps just to keep track of 5 glowing orange bracelets when there are a cluster of kids climbing up steps to get candy.
  2.  Wait for each member of the party. Make sure after each house if you have 7 in your party you still have 7. It’s easy for little ones to get disoriented with so many costumes, unfamiliar faces, and houses.
  3.  When it’s my husband and I one of us usually stay at the front of the group while the other stays behind the group to make sure if little ones are slowing down or getting tired they don’t get separated.
  4.   When you get home, check candies and throw out any that look opened or tampered with.
  5.   Remove any candies that might not be safe for toddlers, small children, or if your child has allergies. Things such as gum, jaw breakers, and hard candies, can be a safety hazard for little ones.

If you’re handing out treats consider having a teal pumpkin stash.  If you’re not familiar with the idea of the teal pumpkin, it’s a worth while to find out.  Displaying a teal pumpkin on your porch lets people know that you have Halloween handout that are safe for kids with allergies.  This can be things like toys, stickers,  bottled water, pencils, etc.  People will either paint a pumpkin teal or even just hang a paper with a picture of a teal pumpkin letting people know they have allergen free treats.

I got these super cute glow in the dark skeleton crawlers. You throw them against a door or wall and they slowly crawl they’re way down the door.

What tips do you have for a safe trick or treat?

Don’t Forget About Trick or Treat! Get Your Candy Now!

I received the below mentioned products at no cost in order to complete an honest review. Any opinions expressed are my own.  

Our local trick or treat is October 31 as well as many of the other neighboring towns.  It’s hard to believe that trick or treat is less than 2 weeks away!  With that being said I’ve been prepping for my 2 youngest’s halloween goodie bags to hand out at school, making bags up for my nieces, and of course, trick or treat handouts.

Oriental Trading has everything I need for all of these things.  I like to have some practical things in their treat bags as well as some sweet and fun treats.

This is part of the Halloween stash:


Ok you have to see this. I just thought this was the cutest thing for my 4 year old daughter to hand out to her K4 class. Unicorn Poop! Yea it’s just rainbow colored mini-marshmallows but how cute right?  Being 4 yrs old my daughter thinks it’s hilarious.  Plus she like marshmallows.

My youngest son on the other hand loves his spicy and sour candies.  The 90 piece War Heads candy pucker party bag has a mixture of War Head candies I didn’t even know existed! My son thinks it’s cool and is so excited about handing those out at his school Halloween party.

I admit it, the tootsie roll soft chews are for me. Something about those chewy, flavorful, fruity candies that satisfy my sweet tooth.  Yea I’ll put some in the bags for my kids and nieces treat bags too but you can bet I’ll have a stash at my desk.


You can find all kinds of Halloween trick-or-treat hand outs at Oriental Trading including teal pumpkin safe treats.

The Zombie Gnomes Started My Halloween Oriental Trading Tradition

I received the below mentioned products at no cost in order to complete an honest review. Any opinions expressed are my own. 

Ive been using Oriental Trading for most of my Halloween decorations for the last several years.  I’ll tell you what got me hooked…it was the zombie gnomes for my garden.  Yep I was so proud of my little gardens when we moved to our new home about 2 years ago.  I just couldn’t neglect them in the fall.  I was searching for zombie gnomes for the garden and I found them at Oriental Trading.  They keep adding more.  I buy 1 or two each year.  I’m up to about 5 zombie gnomes now.  This one is the newest edition.

What I like about my zombie gnomes from Oriental Trading is they’re sturdy. They’re not going to get blown over easily. This one I liked because of the details. Did you notice the zombie mouse and the hole through the zombie’s middle? How about the spiders in her hair?

Another thing I started collecting was the creepy framed holographic prints.  This one is “Aunt Hazel”  last year I got one and a family member looked at it and said “Oh Angie who is this in this pictures?” and then realized what it was and she jumped lol.  Love them.


The newest addition I have is who we have been referring to as “Skully”. I’ve been having a little too much fun with Skully.  He’s life size, posable skeleton, and not so scary for the kids.  Right now Scully is hanging out on the front porch. He my fall evening coffee drinking buddy.  Of course, he doesn’t care much for coffee.

Skully is holding a bowl of Halloween candy rings I also got from Oriental Trading. Not sure if these will be party of the little ones Halloween hand outs for school or part of my treat bags I’m making up for my kids and nieces. Cute, fun, not messy, individually packaged.

It’s like opening a door to a Halloween portable when you go to Oriental Trading’s site. Find just about anything you need: treats, decorations, Halloween party supplies, costumes, crafts, just so many items.
