This is a great project for you and your children to do together. Operation Shoebox Halloween candy program ships packages full of goodies to troops as another way of saying thank you for their service. They also put a call out for toothbrushes, floss, and toothpaste for some seriously responsible indulging.

Use it as holiday decor

With Christmas around the corner, saving candy or freezing some in small plastic bags can easily be used for some holiday decorations. Treats can be used to decorate a gingerbread house or used to make Christmas ornaments. You can also use it as stocking stuffers or table decorations.

Use it for a party

Pinatas are often reserved for children’s birthday parties but let’s face it, adults love them too. Stuff your left-over treats into a pinata or make a board game and use the candy as game pieces. Now you can have fun and not feel bad for it!

Now you don’t have to let all that Halloween Candy go to waste!
