Does the Switch Witch visit your home on Halloween?
Wait. What? You've never met the Switch Witch? Well, let's take a few minutes to introduce her so that she can make a stop at your house this year! The Switch Witch is not scary. She is a welcomed guest — maybe even a cousin of the Tooth Fairy!
On Halloween night, kids throughout the country venture out to trick-or-treat. They all have one goal in mind: to gather a LOT of candy.
But, it isn't all for them, no no no! Some of that candy will comfort their bellies in the coming days, but a good chunk of it can be collected for the Switch Witch.
It is a mystery just how much candy she wants, so it is best to err on the side of caution and leave her more than you think she requires. Halloween night, after the children have drifted off to sleep, the Switch Witch visits and collects the candy left for her by the children and switches it out with a toy, book, game, or other desired item!
Parents love the Switch Witch because she helps them reduce the giant stash of sweets to a more manageable amount. Kids love the Switch Witch because they get something that will last a lot longer than a bag of candy!
Of course, you can still allow your children to indulge on Halloween night and reserve as much (or as little) as you'd like for later. You can even create a secret supply for yourself if you'd like... the Switch Witch will never tell on you!
