The Switch Witch #switchwitch
I purchased The Switch Witch after hearing about her on social media and I thought it was a great idea for younger kids. I also knew Kathleen would love the idea, not to mention getting a new doll with red hair, even if she happens to be a witch ;-).
If only they had this when Hayley was growing up, would have loved to get rid of all the candy! At Halloween we have always loved taking the girls out to trick or treat and see all the neighborhood kids growing up through the years in all their costumes. Last year was our first year living in the country, but the local town has a trick or treat night so we took the girls there for fun. Hayley is at that age of going with her friends alone now, but Kathleen still hangs out with us. Needless to say we always end up with a ton of candy we don't need.
That's where the concept of The Switch Witch comes in. The story book tells all in more detail, but basically on Halloween night after you pick out all the "good" candy you want to keep.... lol.... you then bag up what you don't want and leave it out with your witch and other witches take the candy away to help their community of witches with different things. In return the witches leave a book or small gift for your child. Candy problem solved! :-)
Kathleen enjoyed the story and the witch! She is excited for Halloween night to see what her witch will leave behind. ;-)
I think it's a really cute concept for the younger kids and I had to share it with all of you just in case you haven't heard about it by now. I ordered mine on Amazon and since I'm a prime member, I received mine in 2 days. :-)
They are only little for so long, and making more of these great memories I always treasure. It's a tradition that can be passed down for future generations to come.
Of course I had to get Hayley in the picture too! Love these girls!!
