Wondering what to do with all the excess trick-or-treat candy your child will be amassing on Halloween? Several Meher School families have suggested inviting the Switch Witch to come that night to exchange a small gift for the candy. The gift could be a toy, money, a simple family outing like a bike ride, a healthier snack, or anything your child would look forward to.
You might consider talking to your child about the Switch Witch to gauge if this tradition would be a good fit for your family. If so, you can work with your child to set expectations around how much candy they'll get to keep, and what types of goodies the Switch Witch may leave.
This new tradition me be fun and empowering for some young ones, and parents may appreciate it, too!
