Great Halloween Treats For Grandparents!

If you are lucky enough to have a favorite senior in your life like we are, we’ve got a great idea for a Halloween treat for them.

Our Nana is in an assisted living apartment, and we thought it would be fun to take her over some treats for her to share with others in her community. People in senior care homes (like the ones by Chelsea Senior Living) tend to have activities scheduled for them. It is fun to see all the residents participate in such activities. Maybe nana might want to share the treats with her fellow residents during those fun activities.

It is heartwarming to see the care and support senior residents receive at assisted living facilities from the community of caring individuals who work there. A small gesture of bringing treats might help show our appreciation and bring a little bit of happiness to everyone involved. After all, a little bit of sweetness can go a long way in brightening up someone’s day. We were able to round up this great little cost-effective, and fun bucket of treat bags. As well as some cute costume accessories too! Nana is all set for Halloween, all under $18:


– a jack-o-lantern bucket
– some lime green napkins & plates (that she can use all the way until X-mas)
– a pumpkin loaf we had saved from a friend that we had in the freezer
– 12 treat bags
– purple glitter bat decorations
– 12 little feathered Halloween hair clips
– assorted candy, about 10 pieces per bag
– two festive colored t-shirts
– a flashing light-up Halloween candy necklace

We also put together a bucket of party treats for our other Grandma who lives at home out in LA. She was having a little get together so we grabbed her some treat bags, candy, decorations, napkins, and a table cloth. With the cupcakes she added to the mix, she’s got herself a party-to-go!


A quick trip to the Dollar Tree and or the 99 Cent Store can yield not only one, but two surprises for the special people in your life: yummy treats for neighbors & helpers, and a perfect little party for friends & family all set to go.
