Halloween is just a few days away and I've been making my preparations for the Switch Witch's visit. My children leave all their candy for the Switch Witch on Halloween night, and in return she leaves them a gift and a small quantity of better (less bad) candy. I can handle my children having extra sugar for a few days but hold the chemicals please! Sometimes the gift is a toy. This year it is a gift card to Barnes & Noble that I received for my birthday. My kids love picking out a book at the book store (or thrift store, or library book sale).
But then the question remains, what to do with the unwanted junky candy?
- Should I collect it from my kids the second we get home so I can give it out to other trick-or-treaters?
- Should I give it out on other candy holidays? There are so many these days, sadly.
- Should I mail it to the troops?
- Throw it in the trash?
What do you do with your unwanted Halloween candy?
