We started this one last year as suggested by a friend of mine. After trick-or-treating we allow our children to pick out 10 of their favorite pieces of candy to keep and the rest goes in a bowl on the front porch. While they sleep the Halloween Witch comes and magically changes the candy into a new toy! We hated how their was so much candy and that the kids were still eating it for weeks after Halloween. We don't spend much on the gift....$10 - $15. The kids are happy and we are happy.
