Halloween is coming soon! In our family, my husband, Tim, takes the kids around to Trick or Treat in the neighborhood. I gladly stay home and hand out candy. A lot of the kids know me since I stand at the school bus stop with my kids and try to be a friendly face for all the kids’ morning.
Every year, I hand out a gospel message of some kind along with a big handful of candy. I had success finding good Trick or Treat tracts the first couple years.
Halloween Tracts Online
I have used:
- Oriental Trading’s Shine God’s Light handouts (these were okay, but I wanted a more clear gospel message). They have puzzles and games on each part of the tract so one year I also handed out pencils with it. Here are some Christian themed Halloween pencils.
- Crossway’s Gospel Tracts (these are great, but I usually forget to order them in time!)
- My kids love these Memory Cross Tracts because of how they fold together, but they are on the expensive side. Totally worth it if you don’t get many trick or treaters.
My Free Halloween Gospel Tract
Last year I decided to create my own.
I try to use tracts that are eye-catching, have a simple and clear message of God’s love, and mention Jesus.
I wanted to make the one I created available in case you wanted to use it for your own Trick or Treaters or maybe to inspire you to come up with your own. You can copy and print the photo below or print it out in PDF form here: Halloween Tract 2016
Trick or Treat Tract Tips
It’s cumbersome to hand out the tract and the candy separately. I like to use sandwich bags with candy and the tract inside. That way it’s easy to hand out to each of the kids.
Please, if you use a tract on Halloween night, make sure to hand out LOTS of candy with it. Don’t be THAT house that gives out miserly amounts. Make them overjoyed that they came to your door so that they are willing and eager to see what else you offer–the Love of Christ!
