    This is great! If you didn’t get a ton of kids at your door I’d totally advocate making them to give out on Halloween. 🙂

    Great idea!

    I LOVE THOSE.… Two years ago, I bought a giant box of glow sticks somewhere they were incredibly cheap, and thought I would be a massive hit with the trick-or-treaters.

    Except my neighbor next-door did the SAME exact thing, And the way our street works the kids mostly hit her house first. I couldn’t figure out why the kids weren’t MORE excited until one of them said to me – do you have anything else? The house next-door just gave us those.

    If I was a kid, I’d trade a million miniature chocolate bars to find one of these in my treat bag. So brilliant Alex!

    First, love this craft idea – I don’t know if I can get it together enough to make a hundred of these for trick or treaters this year, but am pinning to use for a Halloween party next year!
    Secondly – this is my first visit to your blog and I LOVE IT. I get you. I’ve just spent 45 minutes reading and perusing and I appreciate your style of blogging – you’ve got a new fan!

    As the mother of a daughter with severe peanut and treenut allergies, I just want to thank you for this! It is so wonderful to read about parents who get it and come up with wonderful food free ways to celebrate the holidays/special events in classrooms. I am sure the parents of the children you are protecting are grateful beyond words.
