ooops! totally forgot……Tip Tuesday: Halloween candy!!!

Candy overload!!!!

Haha….the kids are loving it!

“Yes….only two pieces..!!!.”

It gets old…. pretty quickly.

So…what are we going to do with all of this?

Here are a few suggestions of things I’ve done and some I am considering…that is if I don’t eat the majority of the candy myself…haha.

  • Sort your candy and save it for Christmas baking.

M&Ms, snickers, and Reese’s are great options for this. This was super helpful for me last year when I was involved in a cookie exchange for Christmas. Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake

  • Consider making a candy donation for the troops.

Operation shoebox has a website where you can send candy donations for their holiday shoeboxes. You can link to it here.

  • Send off some candy to your college nieces or nephews.

I know a few who would love to see some of this candy. (No worries…I’m sending it soon.)

  • If you know you have a birthday party coming up, save it for goody bags or for decorating the birthday cake.
  • Chop up some of these candy bars and use them for toppings in an ice cream sundae bar.
  • Consider making an extraordinary dessert for a new mom or new neighbor. (You can click on the images to be directed to the websites)

  • This is a great time to work on some Math skills.

Have your preschoolers/Kindergardeners work on their sorting skills. Have them sort by color, then by name.

One of my homeschooling friends directed me to this link for a graphing activity with halloween candy…..simply brilliant!!! (you can click on the image for the link)

Here’s to hoping that you are more successful than I have been at avoiding the “nighttime baggy robbery”…..

God bless,
