Wondering what to do with all that Halloween candy? Why not donate all those sweets to our men & women overseas. Many dentists are buying the candy from their patients for $1.00 per pound & donating it to Operation Gratitude. Brighten up the day of one of our heroes by including a card. For those less fortunate, you may consider packaging it in little gift bags & donating it to a retirement home or homeless shelter.
The kids won’t mind giving up some of their stash when they try these easy, fun scientific experiments like “making Lifesavers flash in the dark” or watch the letters magically float off the M&M’s or Skittles – These fun projects can be found at: http://www.candyexperiments.com
If you really MUST eat all your candy, there are a few ways to mix up the delivery. Try blending a chocolate bar with milk for a quick milkshake. Add ice cream for a chocolate smoothie.
