Some "un-safe" candy always seems to make to into our house in their little buckets. Again, I am thankful that my kids ask before eating and they are very cautious about eating foods(and candy) that they don't recognize as "safe".
With some of the "leftover" candy, I set-up a little Candy Swap for the kids. They gave me pieces of "un-safe" candy and exchanged it for a piece from a "safe" bowl that I had made for them. They were sooo excited....
And truly reminded me of the phrase, "like kids in a candy store" !!
You can tell that much deliberation went into choosing the new candy that they wanted in their buckets!!!
Here is the "contraband" that we found in their buckets!! I'm soo relieved to have it out and the safe candies in!!! Just a moment or idea to try something new could make one of the kids very sick!
Do you recognize any of your favorite treats?
I think sometimes Brian and I feel a little remorseful for what we feel like the kids are missing or denied because of their allergies. But we are soo thankful for the treats that they ARE able to enjoy and are always a little excited to find new ones they can have and like:) This year the kids discovered NERDS..... I think it's funny because their favorites are now Smarties (US type) and NERDS :)
