Candy Control: Make a Plan for Halloween

Make a Sweet Donation

Turn this holiday into teaching moment that focuses on giving to the less fortunate. Drop candy off at the local food bank or children’s hospital as a family. Praise your kid for sharing her treats, explaining how her gift will bring a smile to someone's face. She’ll love the warm fuzzy feeling she gets by being generous instead of the typical post-Halloween tummy ache.
