Tonight is Trick or Treating in our neighborhood. We have a tradition with our kids and I thought that maybe my daughter would tire of the tradition this year. Nope.
After I take them Trick or Treating and they fill up their pumpkin, we will dump out all the candy and sort it by favorites. Then they pick out 10 pieces of their favorites and the rest goes back in the pumpkin and by the back door. During the night the Great Pumpkin comes and takes all their candy and leaves them prizes in return. (Then Mom and Dad enjoy the candy for a few months.) Emily LOVES this tradition and I love that they don’t spend days/weeks begging for Halloween candy.
A friend of mine has the tooth fairy visit on Halloween and take the candy and leave toothbrushes in exchange.
Do you have any Halloween traditions like this?
