Pumpkin Fairy

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.

  1. Oh my goodness this is a GENIUS idea!! If we actually trick or treated I would so be splashing the fairy dust around and leaving a much better gift behind *grin*.
