Every year I do yard sales and collect stuffed toys, trucks, games, etc. that are in good condition, from all my friends who are trying to get rid of them. I also pick up a bundle from Oriental Trading company. Instead of candy, I pass out toys and games. The parents are thankful and the kids are ECSTATIC!! I don't like to give out unhealthy treats at Halloween or any other time of the year. This has kept us from dipping into a candy bowl all month too, so it has served as a double reward! What do you all do for Halloween?

Hi Keli!

It's fun to see the reactions of the kids! Maybe this year I will video it! Last year, all the little ones seemed to come at exactly the same time and they all screamed when they saw it was toys. IT was a FEEDING FRENZY! All us parents laughed and helped the kids pick out the toys.

I think I WILL video it this year. SO ADORABLE!! I'll post the video after Halloween. If you want to see it, it will be on my profile. Just friend request me and I will recognize your name and add you. :)
