If your kids were alone with their candy for 30 minutes what would they do?
My kids LOVE their Halloween candy. Saturday morning they woke up and started sorting it and comparing with each other. I didn't think too much of it. Then they wanted to go play upstairs with it. I was otherwise occupied with the little one and didn't really care at that point. I did tell them not to eat it.... no, I didn't expect them to listen.
So when I came upstairs to check on the kids and the candy this is what I found.
You might not be able to tell, but there are 3 piles of candy around the car rug and then on the rug are more candy...
Yes, they were playing with their candy like cars. It was very cute and I couldn't resist the photo op! Talmage the next day during quiet time took his candy upstairs and outlined the different candies in his notebook, labeled and colored them so that when he eats them all he still remembers what they looked like.
I have a couple of theories. They are either too deprived of toys and therefore their candy will make great toys... we all know kids love to play with their food, OR they get so much candy all the time that turning it into toys is no big deal, because they have so much candy, OR they just love their candy whether to eat or play, it's all good! A good imagination is priceless. I'm sure you can guess which category my kids fit into.
I am surprised there was no empty wrappers around, but there's still time for that. I just have to be sure they keep the candy up or Punkin might get into it :)
