Halloween Gift: A Bit of Light…

October 11, 2012
…for Halloween Night!

Hi everyone! I am actually ahead of schedule (or perhaps this could be called procrastinating on a new level) and whipped up a little sign to go with a
Halloween gift for my class. 
(I was inspired by all of those awesome glow stick gifts out there on Pinterest).
So I bought some of those glow stick bracelets from Walmart…
And divided them up, three bracelets per student (I like odd numbers in arrangements!).

Then I just taped the three bracelets together and taped the sign to the top of them…
I really like this idea because it’s not candy (we won’t be needing too much more of that, right?) and it will help with safety on Halloween Night. Plus who doesn’t like glow sticks??? πŸ™‚
If you would like to download the signs for your class, please click on the image below…
When does your city or town trick or treat? The city I work in goes on the grand night itself, which should make for an interesting week, since that’s midweek!! πŸ™‚

    What a wonderful idea – Love it!

    And I definitely agree about the candy thing…my kids come in shaking from the sheer amount of sugar coursing through their veins πŸ™‚

    Love it! I always try to find alternatives for candies. I wish we did trick or treat in my town. πŸ™‚

    Love the idea of it not being candy!!! Thanks so much for sharing. We are one of two schools in my district that still have the kids dress up in the afternoon and parade around the building. We we'll have a Halloween party in the afternoon and this will make a perfect gift. It's the only holiday I get to celebrate since it's school wide, and this is my second year of having a student who does not celebrate holidays.

    You know I was just about to go buy some glow masks at my local Target for my kids to wear on Halloween. Most of my kids don't have costumes and it is nice to give them something so they are not left out. This sign is perfect for that. Thanks a bunch.


  • Sara Soucy October 12, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    I like the idea of keeping them safe at night (and no extra candy)!

    Thanks for sharing. We trick or treat on Halloween night itself. Our classes are still allowed to have a Halloween Party where the kids dress up in costume. I like to hand out glow sticks too.
