Treating kids to an exciting Halloween doesn’t have to be a scary prospect for parents….but I admit this year I’m kind of terrified about the candy after poor Kyle’s cavity diagnosis – 3 years old and 8 cavities – horrifying for sure and the thought of adding Halloween to his mouth a week after this diagnosis is very frightening to Mom & Dad.
Do you try to give out healthy treats or toys instead of candy? Check out Disney’s Healthy Living Challenge for this week here on Facebook – share your thoughts!
These were my 2 favorite products we sampled from Disney this week – both made my life soooo simple. The super easy to use face paint which was the best face paint / tattoo type item I’ve ever used in my life – so easy to apply. And the easy to hand out Utz Cars Pretzel snacks. My kids and their friends have been indulging in these for the past few weeks – delicious and nutritious when it comes to treats!
Fan Stamp’s Instant Press-On Face Paint: These Disney Princess- and Disney·Pixar Cars-themed face paints allow you to create fun and unique designs perfect for any Halloween occasion. The face paint decals are easy to apply and easy to remove, making them a treat for kids and parents alike.

How do you help little ghosts and goblins find a treat balance during this scary season? Do you let your kids keep their Halloween candy or not? I’m thinking in 3 days I say it all goes and let them trade it in for a special day out with Mom or as a family……
