What do with all that Halloween candy your little trick-or-treaters brought home? Now you’re faced with the sweetest dilemma – We’ve got an awesome plan that’ll not only keep the spooky vibes alive but also warm some hearts along the way! 😁
First things first, we totally understand the temptation to keep all that candy for ourselves, but as responsible parents, we have two choices:
Embrace the sugar coma and create a candy kingdom right here at home (Most loved answer) 🍬🍭).
Share the sweetness with others who could really use a dose of Halloween magic! 🧙♀️✨
We’re leaning toward option #2, and here’s why it’s so much fun: Halloween is one of the most fun holidays EVER, and we can spread the spooky spirit to those who might not have had the opportunity to have as great a time as we did. 🎉👻
Here are some spooktacular ideas for sharing the candy joy:
🎃 Drop off some candy at your local food bank or shelter and make someone’s day.
🎃 Join Operation Gratitude and send a care package to our amazing troops, complete with your extra candy.
🎃 Find a dentist who’ll trade candy for cash (yes, you heard that right!), and they’ll send it to troops overseas.
🎃 Check out schools, community centers, or nursing homes who would LOVE to get a special treat …and a visit!
Here’s the fun part: Let’s turn the candy donation into an adventure! Set a limit on how much candy your kids can keep and then involve them in picking out the candy to share. Explain why it’s so awesome to give and let them help deliver the sweet goodies. They’ll learn about spreading kindness and having a blast at the same time! 🦸♂️👸
