I was reading over at Magic Onion about a new tradition they started last year in their family. After all the trick-or-treating fun, each family member chooses 10 pieces of candy to keep. All other candy is placed into each child's individual Halloween bucket and left at the end of his/her bed.
That night the Pumpkin Fairy sneaks into the children's rooms and replaces the candy with a special treat. The treat could be anything from a homemade toy to a book to a new pair of pajamas. The choice is entirely up to you.
Fairy dust is left sprinkled on the end of the bed and sporadically around the room.
I can't imagine the fun this would have been as a child.
I hope the Pumpkin Fairy can visit as many homes as possible this year and become an enchanting reminder of childhood in the years to come.
