I would guess it was less than 5 minutes but it felt like a long time and was very exciting.

Speaking from experience, there is nothing sweeter than receiving some American candy at just the right time. :)

They really enjoy doing this and the elderly just love it.

I am easily swayed to double the donation, too.

We really don’t take out kids trick or treating. We always have a party on halloween with my family where we play games, show off costumes, eat yummy soup and then hit up a very distinct dozen houses. By the time my husband and I have had a few pieces each there really isn’t much candy to deal with. And when I really think about it, the party is much more fun and memorable than trick or treating.

My daughter loves to go through it and think of how to use each piece. This works great for us since all the candy is still hers and builds anticipation for the gingerbread house.

The rest gets donated to the candy drive at school. This is organized by the 8th graders who collect all the “extra” candy from the school families. It all goes to a local dentist who pays each class a per lb. price and then he donates all the candy to our local veterans hospital and rehabilitation center. His motivation – cavity prevention and a good deed. Each class decides how to spend their money. Many of them choose to donate it to the parish food pantry or soup kitchen.

They can pig out the first night, and I tend to put a piece in their lunch boxes for the next week or two, but after that they tend to lose interest. I like the idea of a family candy bowl, but I’m afraid that I might enjoy it a little too much!

I do have to say that these pictures are FABULOUS! I’m a sucker for sorting, and for rainbows, and these pics are adorable.

Our girls had so much fun bidding on things (mom cleans your bedroom, choice of dinner, get a soda with Dad, wear mascara to school, control of the remote for a day, etc). I then took the candy and put it in the freezer to pull out for movie nights, school lunches and long drives.

My kids are given it alllll the time it seems. A few years ago we suggested they donate to the soldiers overseas and they were so excited to do that. We wanted to reward them for their choice so now each year we take them -and any friends who want to donate- out for a bowling party! It has turned into a great tradition that we really look forward to…
