Leftover Halloween Candy Uses

Guest Author - Brandii Lacey

Some children have such success trick or treating that they find themselves up to their ears with leftover Halloween candy.

Leftover candy can be a tricky topic for families. After all, how much candy does a child really need? Some kids get so much candy, that they still have leftovers at Easter!

There are many solutions to using leftover candy. From donations to sharing with friends, you can show your kids how far a little creativity goes to helping others, without wasting one piece of leftover candy!

Here are a few examples of places, people, and events that will welcome your leftover Halloween candy:
  • Nursing Home

  • Food Bank

  • Soldiers (Confirm that solider is able to accept candy in his or her care
    package)

  • Ronald McDonald Houses

  • An elderly neighbor that could use some treatsóand some company!

  • Birthday parties: If you child has a birthday party approaching soon after Halloween, saving leftover candy for treat bags will save you time and money.

  • Holiday parties: Leftover candy is perfect for serving at holiday parties. Simply place the candy in a festive bowl, and allow guests to take one as they choose.
As your child collects Halloween candy, make sure he or she knows the following safety rules:
  1. Do not eat any piece of Halloween candy until itís back at home and inspected by a responsible adult.

  2. Only trick or treat in a group, with at least one adult present.

  3. The adult chaperon should always carry a flashlight and cell phone.

  4. Leave pets at home, as candy can be dangerous, and even fatal for some dogs. Children love pets, and are often eager to share their treats with them. However, it's very dangerous to do so, especially with candy.

  5. If trick or treating in a group, make sure everyone stays together, no matter how hard one tries to go down another route or street.

  6. Let your child know that itís perfectly fine to stay home and hand out candy rather than go trick or treating. Some children prefer this to going trick or treating, as it's not quiet as scary, especially at a young age.
