21 Halloween Party Favor and Treat Bag Ideas
Halloween Treat Cones
These cute cones are easy to make and can be filled with an assortment of small trinkets, toys and candy for guests to enjoy.
Indulge Their Sweet Tooth
Kids love lollipops, especially old-fashioned swirly ones. To make these easy party favors, remove original packaging and pop the lollipops into clear cellophane bags. Tie a bow to close each bag, then finish with a printed and punched tag design, template attached below.
Thank Them for "Popping" By
With so much candy around at Halloween parties, a salty snack will hit the spot. Whip up some homemade kettle-popped corn or one of our popcorn recipes below and place in scallop-edged cups. Embellish with dimensional scrapbooking stickers (found at craft stores) or one of our free printables. If you're sending a cup home with your party guests, wrap it in cellophane and tie with ribbon so the popcorn will stay fresh.
Go a Little Batty
Easily turn wooden clothespins into cute Halloween bag clips. Download our bat-shaped template, print it onto card stock, cut out, then attach it to the clothespin with hot glue or double-sided tape. Fill a clear bag with Halloween candy or gumballs and attach the clip for a fun favor.
Cupcakes To Go
Everyone loves cupcakes, especially kids! Place cupcakes in paper or plastic bowls and wrap with cellophane for a portable container they can take with them. Add one of our free printable Halloween tags to dress it up.
Preserve Party Memories
This photo frame idea is perfect for photo booth or Halloween costume parties. Before the party, print and cut out several of the 4" x 6" frame designs (template below). You can also purchase several simple plastic frames, like this one from Ikea, to hold the finished photos. As each guest arrives, take their photo, then print out the photos during the party. Insert photos in printed frames and give them to departing guests as party favors.
Glitzy Party Crown
Help kids make these charming crowns as a fun craft activity during the party. They can wear them as part of the festivities or take them home for later. Using our free printable templates, decorative paper and embellishments, these crowns are easy to create yet so cute.
Batty Party Crown
This adorable crown uses the same basic materials as the glitzy crown but is embellished by our free printable bat template (below) instead of a cupcake liner flower and bauble.
Kids will have a great time posing for photos with these printable jack-o'-lantern grins. Just download the template below, print onto card stock, cut out, then attach to a straw or small wooden dowel.
Follow the Ball
This classic game with a Halloween twist is sure to provide tons of fun for the kids. Give each child a set of three white paper bowls with "eyes" made by hole-punching black paper and attaching the punched dots with glue. Give kids a gumball and show them how to play the game with a partner by hiding the gumball under one of the ghosts, moving the ghosts around and having his/her partner guess which ghost has the gumball.
Candy Favor Boxes
Premade Halloween boxes are a quick-and-easy option to fill with candy or small toys. Embellished with one of our printable tag designs, party guests or trick-or-treaters will be excited to open them to see what's inside.
Put Chocolate Under Wraps
Kids love candy bars — after all, who doesn't? For a super simple party favor, use one of our printable wrapper designs to dress up a classic candy bar to match the party decor. Just print the template onto standard copier paper, then cut out the design and use double-sided tape to attach the Halloween wrapper to a chocolate bar.
Candy-Corn-Colored Gumball Necklace
All you need to make this sweet necklace is gumballs, ribbon and a few tools. Use a skewer to puncture each gumball, one side at a time. Thread ribbon through a large needle and slide through gumball, tying a knot between each as you go. Add a ribbon bow for a little extra finishing touch.
Being a party guest is thirsty work, and what kid could resist these dressed-up soda bottles? Chill sodas prior to the party and embellish right before it starts with our printable black-and-white striped paper and a punched tag. Tie on a straw with twine; open bottles if guests will be enjoying them during the party, or leave the caps on if they'll be taking them home as a favor.
Mini Candy Jars
Small glass or plastic jars can be found inexpensively at many craft and dollar stores. Simply fill with candy corn, gummy worms or individually wrapped chocolates and attach a punched Halloween tag with twine for a finished look.
Kids love rock candy sticks. Place them by the door and they won't be able to resist taking one for the road as they leave the party. To add a little embellishment, cut strips from our printable black-and-white striped paper, attach with double-sided tape and cut into a flag shape. Display on a white platter so the colors pop.
Mason Jar Favors
Mason jars are everywhere these days and they're a great, affordable party favor. For Halloween, fill with white candy to make a ghost or orange candy to make a pumpkin. Top with a circle cut from our printable black-and-white striped paper and replace the lid. Use decals or stickers to create the ghost or pumpkin face. Tie on one of our printable tags with twine to complete the look.
Them Bones, Them Bones
Mini candy bones give these marshmallow treats a crunchy texture kids love. To create them, skewer a regular-sized marshmallow onto a 6-inch lollipop stick. Dip into melted chocolate and, while the chocolate is still warm, roll in candy bones. For perfect presentation, display in small cupcake liners and top each stick with a little black bow.
These clear tubes are turning up at parties everywhere not only because they're adorable, but because they're so easy! Just fill with candy or gumballs and top with a printable Halloween flag design.
Another simple idea is to send your guests home with a sweetly packaged cookie. Whether you bake them at home or purchase them at the bakery, kids will be happy to have a sweet treat to enjoy after the party. Place cookies in Halloween-themed bags, wrap in twine and attach a printable Halloween tag.
Halloween Linen Sacks
These small linen sacks came pre-printed with their Halloween designs, but you could easily dress up plain sacks with foam stamps or a stencil and craft paint. Fill with candy and toys for the party guests to take home.
