If I remember anything about childhood trick or treating, it is that the only thing worse than seeing a house with its lights off was walking up to the front door only to have that “sleeping” scarecrow come alive and scare the bejebbus out of you. While I love scaring people, I absolutely hate being scared me (yes, I deserve it) so if it was up to me, I’d change the phrase from “Trick or Treat” to just “Treat or Treat.” Because not once as a kid did I say “Trick or Treat” and have a trick thrown in my bag.
So since Trick or Treat is a question that results in the same outcome (treats) I decided to make a Halloween treat bag label to solve this dilemna. Forget the tricks, all most people want are the treats.
You can attach this printable label to the front of a treat bag (as seen here), attach to a plain ziploc bag, or even just staple to the end of a candy bar. The printable sheet includes 4 labels, but you can print as many as you need.
You can fill it with loose candy for a Halloween party, or fill it with sealed & packaged treats if you want to use it for trick-or-treaters.
Halloween Treat Bags Label // Scissors or Exacto Knife
Tape // Paper Bags (The ones shown here are 3″inches tall & are from Michaels Craft Store)
So the curious question of the day is: Did you ever get turned down candy in exchange for a trick? I’d love to hear your funniest trick-or-treating stories or scares!
They are so cool! Thanks for sharing :)
These bags look amazing. It makes me so sad that Halloween isn’t really celebrated in The Netherlands :(
I might have a funny story for you after I print this out and traipse around my largely adult dwelling apartment complex asking for candy. This is too cute to not go trick or treating with!
Bahaha please record this. Also, if I book a flight to AZ can I come with?
