How had I not heard of this before? Have you guys? A friend shared about this today on Facebook and I think it’s ingenious! It’s a tradition called the Switch Witch, think Easter Bunny or Santa but only this little lady comes into your house, takes all your Halloween candy and leave the kids with small toys or items as a trade.
It first appeared as this cute little book and story which is still available on Amazon but I think you could also totally do this in a house without the book and witch just using the concept of the witch. (Little guys may like having the story read to them before bed one night though!)
You could totally adapt this to fit your family – do it tonight, tomorrow night or next week! And trade them for money, toys or whatever! All I know is that we have way too much Halloween candy leftover each year so this is a pretty ingenious concept.
