  1. I meant as small toys,pencils,stickers.I find these make a much nicer treat than candy ! I like to buy small items over the Spring and summer(markdowns) and give out as treats

    1. Now is a great time to buy special items on markdown and a great way to give kids something more memorable than candy. Great idea!

  2. Dollar Store has many items great for giving out and much better than candy and cheaper than good quality candy !

    1. Yes, good point Kathy! Depending on the store, you can often find most types of candy at the dollar store. And usually much cheaper than the grocery store.
