I love Halloween, though the extra candy we never eat can be a bit overwhelming. Today I share a guest post on MomsRising.org, an organization that focuses on the most critical issues facing women, mothers, and families, by mobilizing massive grassroots action, talking about what to do with all the extra candy…and lucky for you there are great tips that can help teach your child about giving back!
Below is the first paragraph of my post: Give Back & Have a Healthier Halloween:
Halloween in our house, like many others, is full of excitement – from carving pumpkins, decorating, and picking costumes, it’s a time of year both my daughter and I look forward too. I’ve always wanted to show my daughter that Halloween is much more than ‘trick-or-treating’ and getting bags full of candy. It’s great to see communities come together and get in the Halloween spirit. The neighborhood we enjoy visiting on Halloween is truly incredible, all the houses are decorated, people are on their steps passing out candy, and often times there is apple cider! While my daughter is focused on getting lots of candy, she is also able to experience Halloween on an elevated level and enjoys seeing her friends and appreciates the time and effort that goes into creating a special Halloween.
