Every parent knows the “joy” of the Elf on the Shelf.
Now, the Elf has a quasi cousin – the Switch Witch.
Apparently, you feed the Switch Witch your kids’ candy – and that the witch switches it for a toy, piece of sporting equipment, a book, blah, blah, blah …
“Your Switch Witch will stay with your family as a guest in the days and weeks until Halloween night. Kids will be kind hosts as they make their Switch Witch friend feel happy and welcome. In exchange, each smart little Switch Witch has an amazing surprise . . .”
“On Halloween night at bedtime, kids leave a heap of their trick-or-treat sweets with their Switch Witch pal . . . . . and in the morning they will see that their candy has been switched (wink! wink!) for a special switch gift!”
If you’re just going to take all your kid’s candy away – why even let her go out in the first place?
The joy of Halloween is eating the good stuff in the days right after Oct. 31 and then letting all those gummy old suckers sit there for a few months.
If you’re fancy/creative/enthusiastic, you can also do these ridiculous things with your leftover candy:
1. Take off all the wrappers and use them in crafts (WHAT?)
2. Use it in baking
3. Use it on Christmas gingerbread men or houses
4. Bring it to the office (NO!)
5. Donate it
