Around my house, we enjoy the fun of dressing up & trick-or-treating but THEN instead of keeping all that sugary candy, our child leaves his bag of treats for the HALLOWEEN FAIRY and the Halloween Fairy takes MOST of that sugary candy and INSTEAD leaves a gift (toy,etc) for our son in return for all that junk! He LOVES it! (And so do we!)
Of course that candy is put up and he's given a little treat here and there (maybe a few for me too) but none of the candy gorging all week! I have heard that right after Halloween the doctor's offices are very busy ... since sugar lowers the immune system kids get sick!
So, to make it fun my little guy, I made up this poem/sign that we leave for the Halloween Fairy alongside his candy!
"Dear Halloween Fairy,
I've done a lot of trick or treating on this Halloween,
of too many sugary sweets my mommy is not keen.
My candy is for you to take,
so I don't get a tummy ache.
Oh, how happy I would be,
if you left a gift for me!"
Now, of course, this will only work when they are in the younger years but then it will be a great keepsake!
If you want it personalized with a name at the bottom, eg., Love, Nick, convo me.

Please be aware that I use pine wood which may have knots, small dinks, varied roughness and imperfections as to be expected of wood. I do sand each piece with an electric sander, but I do not attempt to completely cover these. I think they add warmth, charm & character to the sign. Each sign will vary depending on those characteristics, grain of the wood and distressing. For painted, shabby distressed signs, each will vary according to the distressing as well.
