Dinner Time Before Candy Time #Treats4All #Shop

Our Halloween Plan: Dinner Time Before CANDY Time #Treats4All When Halloween falls on a school day, as it does this year, it can be a challenge to get the kids to sit down for dinner before heading out for candy. "We'll just eat candy for dinner!" they say. "Not on my watch," I respond. "It's dinner time BEFORE candy time!" I remind them.

Pinterest is a great place for inspiration. Since I'm not a big cook, I try to find ideas that don't require a lot of work. The kids really enjoy helping to make these treats a Continue Reading...
