Preparing for Halloween

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

We take our 4 year old out trick or treating only around one neighborhood so he doesn't get much candy. I throw/give away the ones he doesn't eat and the ones that he likes, goes up on top of the hutch so they are out of site, out of mind so to speak and he only gets one or 2 a day... We do not buy any candy to hand out as we are not home.

    We go to the local YMCA. They hand out candy and a small prize. My daughter only chooses the prize and never the candy! Fine with me. Any candy given to her at school or by family usually sits in a container and I dump out within a month. She usually forgets she has candy or just ignores it...wish I could be like that! emoticon

    That reminds me, I need to find out if there are any children in the park. If not, no candy in our house! If so, a small bag of something I won't eat, or something healthy or non-food related for the kiddos.

    That is a pretty good idea. My kids are older and enjoy handing out candy more than trick-or-treating. Last year I bought stuff that I wouldn't eat (taffy, hard candy, lollipops, gum) and a few plastic toys. This way I didn't sit and eat a bag of chocolate while we handed it out. My plan this year is a good scary movie, popcorn, and no chocolate in the house.
