Halloween is in a few short days. With the chaos of finding the perfect costume, decorating the house, carving the scariest pumpkin or hiding the multiple bags of candy so it’s not all eaten before hand, take a few minutes to think about what you’re going to do with all the leftover treats!
Our friends at GreenWala have this to say about the Switch Witch …
“The Switch Witch is probably the best idea I’ve ever encountered for this problem. The Switch Witch lives on the dark side of the moon and collects candy. She is the envy of the witching community for her ever growing stash. In an effort to stay on top, every year she puts the word out to children: If on Halloween night they will leave their bags of candy next to their bedroom door, she will happily trade them for a new toy.”
Halloween Candy Buy Back!
Visit a participating dentist and your extra candy will be donated to our troops abroad! Find a participating dentist near you!
Check with local children’s charities, pediatric hospitals, Ronald McDonald House. Many of these children don’t have the opportunity to go Trick-or-Treating, so special treats are most welcome. Call ahead to find out donation policies.
You might also consider donating to a local food bank.
Decorate with it!
Save candy and use it for decorating Gingerbread Houses for Christmas and holidays.
