As Halloween approaches there is always the dilemma of what to do with all the candy. Well, here is what I am going to do this year with my granddaughter’s haul complete with a “fairy witch’s tale”.
The Switch Witch is a nice way to “get rid” of the Halloween Haul.
Your child can eat some of his candy on Halloween night
Then lays out the rest for the Switch Witch before he/she goes to bed.
The Switch Witch makes rounds and takes the candy
and leaves a new toy!
What a great way to deal with the Halloween dilemma!
Any suggestions as to what the “Switch Witch” should do with the candy? I would love to read your comments?
