What To Do With All That Candy!

The costumes have been packed away and your pumpkins are heading to the trash. Halloween is over. All that remains is the giant pile of candy! Kids usually bring back more candy than they could or should eat!

Here are a few tips on what to do with all that candy!

  • Go through all the candy. Anything that is open goes into the trash. If there are types that you know your kid won't or can't eat move to a giveaway pile. 
  • Take your giveaway pile to work and share it with your co-workers. 
  • HerMamas reader Rachel C. gave us the great tip of checking your local dentists! Some dentists run a program where you can exchange candy for a prize. (If you are in the San Diego area Candy Buy Back is a great program for this!)
  • Give the candy a deadline. At this time of the year there seems to be endless amounts of candy coming into the house with all the holidays. In my house Halloween candy gets tossed at Thanksgiving. Any Thanksgiving treats get tossed at Christmas and so on. 

What do you do with all that candy? Leave us a comment and share your tips!
