Here is how it works:
Just before the kids go to bed after going trick-or-treating, have them set their candy by the door. After they go to bed, parents swap it out for a toy (or basically any non-candy surprise their kids would like).
Not only do the kids get to go trick-or-treating, but they also get a surprise gift when they wake up the next morning.
Meanwhile, the parents can donate the Halloween candy to a local food pantry, homeless shelter or any other organization and get a tax-refundable donation receipt.
Pretty awesome, right?
This is a win-win tradition where kids can still go trick-or-treating, but afterwards they'll gladly give up their candy for a good cause!
