Candy Control: Make a Plan for Halloween

4 of 9

Trade It In

Collect small trinkets, homemade “get out of chores” coupons and movie tickets to sell to your child in a November 1st Store, in exchange for her Halloween loot. She’ll love the purchasing power, and won’t mind parting with her sweets in exchange for a new keychain or pencil case. If your kid is uninterested, offer to buy her candies at a rate of ten to twenty-five cents apiece. That way, she can start saving up for something she really wants.
