What to do with the bucket load of candy your children will arrive home with this Halloween is a question many pf us parents face each year.
Maybe your child has allergies to various ingredients found in candies or possibly you just don’t want your kids to live on a week long sugar high.
I recently heard of a great Idea if you are in need of the bucket load of candy disappearing in your home this Halloween.
The Candy Fairy – Who comes during the night to replace the sugary treats with a toy or money. Tell your children about the Candy fairy and the ask them to leave their buckets of candy out so that the Candy Fairy can do her magic of replacing the candy with her gifts.
There is even a book about such a fairy
All Hallows Eve: The Story of the Halloween Fairy by Lisa Sferlazza Johnson.
A pinch of modern fairy dust is sprinkled on Halloween traditions in this playful, ghoul- and goblin-free introduction to the holiday. Eve, a young fairy from the All Hallows pumpkin patch, loves candy but is unable to make it—she can only create toys with her magic. Eve determinedly practices her spells, hoping she’ll be able to magic up candy on her birthday, October 31st. During her dress-up birthday party, Eve’s finest attempts yield only candy-shaped toys—such as candy bar blocks, candy cane whistles, and squeaky toy cakes. As her frustration grows, her party guests save the day by visiting all the pumpkins in the patch and collecting candy to fulfill Eve’s wish. Overjoyed by their kindness, Eve gratefully offers the toys she created to her friends. A tale of friendship, cooperation, and self-acceptance, this story also provides health-conscious families and those with specific dietary concerns an alternative way to enjoy the holiday activities.
