Make Learning Sweet
Science is a fun subject to explore with kids. This is the perfect time of year to put your candy overflow to work and make the learning process super sweet. This idea for candy science identifies acidic candy and nonacidic candy in a kid-friendly way.
Sweet Art Ideas
There are so many ways that you can take your extra candy and turn it into a tool for learning. One of my favorites is to make candy ink. An art project your kids create with this awesome ink will be incredibly sweet and satisfying.
My daughter loves jewelry so this idea to make a sweet bracelet to share with a friend with left over twizzlers is perfect for us! Another idea we are loving is to make a turkey pinata and stuff it with candy to pull out for some festive fun at our family's Thanksgiving celebration.
Share the Sweetness
Call Retirement Homes, Food Banks, and Area Churches to see if they can redistribute your extra candy to get it to someone who will enjoy it. Operation Shoebox and the Ronald McDonald House are other great ways to share your extra candy and make the world a touch sweeter.
Turn It Into Sweet Cash
A dentist in my area will buy your Halloween candy by the pound. This is a nice way to give your kids an option, keep the candy or earn money towards something they have their eye on. Operation Gratitude is another organization that will purchase unopened candy for redistribution.
I hope these ideas help you find ways to use your extra Halloween candy this year in a way you can feel good about. If you have any ideas for how to use excess candy, leave a comment please!
