We have a fun Halloween tradition I wanted to share. We call it "The Great Pumpkin Offering". On Halloween night, once the kids have gotten home and are warming up with hot chocolate... we give a small sandwich baggie to each kiddo. They go through their candy and pick only their *FAVORITE* treats to keep. Then, we fill up a large candy bowl with the rest and leave a "candy offering" on our doorstep for the Great Pumpkin. In the morning, the candy is gone... but a fun (yet small) toy for each kid is waiting for them instead. The kids LOVE this tradition, they are always excited to see what fun toy they get and I'm happy because the candy has magically disappeared!
Happy Haunting... and be sure to stop by my Etsy Shop!
