Ghouls, Goblins, and Monsters all sweep the streets on the last night of October. You prep your kiddos to be scary, cute, fun and cool for a chance to stay up late and get candy! Halloween is the one night you get to be someone – or something else, walk alongside people in your community, subject yourself to a haunted house or two and take candy from neighbors.
While there are so many positive sides to trick or treating, there is one major negative side. The CANDY! In all its’ glory and yumminess, candy is not an ideal part of a well-balanced diet! It can cause hyperactivity, weight gain, obesity, diabetes, and so much more. So how can you alleviate the burden of such a monumental part of Halloween?
Introduce the Switch Witch! The Switch Witch is a fun and exciting way to get rid of all the excess candy. After a fun night of Trick-Or-Treating, have your kids choose the top 5-10 pieces of candy that they want to keep and then put the rest outside of their door. Why would they do that you ask? Meet the Switch Witch!
I am sneaky and creepy, but I am not after you. I have a picky black cat that only eats sweet treats.
He isn’t like most cats, he thrives on sugar. It’s hard to get enough to feed him for the entire year, so I decided to make a trade.
I come to your house late Halloween Night and swap your candy for something cool!
You never know what you’ll get so it’s always a surprise! I could leave some clothes to wear, a toy, something for your piggy bank, or even a game to share.
If you want to help me out, simply choose the top 10 pieces you want to keep and leave the rest outside your bedroom door for me to sweep.
You don’t get the prize if you aren’t asleep, so choose wisely and don’t make a peep!
