Post Halloween Candy Challenge


Anyone up for a challenge? What in the world do I do with a ridiculous amount of candy that we gathered from Trick or Treating? I could give it all to my three-year old and 18 month old but I am kind of partial to their teeth. I could eat it all but I have recently lost 45 lbs and I am not keen on regaining it by Thanksgiving. I could throw it all in the trash but I hate to waste anything. So what is my solution? Turn them in to crafts and activities. If you do a fun activity or craft this week with your excess Halloween please leave me a message or email. I am going to post a few this week and then this weekend I will do a post highlighting all of the great ideas that I have found from other blogs during the week.

  1. Do you have any kids' birthdays coming up? You can save the candy for goodie bags. That's all that I can come up with right now. :-) Hopefully you get some good suggestions.

  2. patterning activites with smarties, skittles, etc.
    use the lollypops to make a feather tail for a turkey, somehow??

  3. Suggestion for next year: when the kids have "enough" candy, stop trick or treating. Then you won't have to worry about it!

  4. Let the kids enjoy it that night. Then freeze it for gingerbread houses for Christmas. (Freezing it makes sure you don't eat it!) Also, I saved out a stash to do candy experiments from www.candyexperiments.com.

  5. What a great idea! I never though of using them for crafts. I am keeping the bulk of mine for my son's b-day party in December. I'm going to throw it in the pinata.
