The pillow cases are full of candy. Bowl after bowl is overflowing with candy. Let’s face it, most kids lose interest in Halloween candy after a day or two. Inevitably, mom and dad end up eating most of the Halloween candy. Which is not cool. I don’t need to eat buckets of candy…my hips don’t need me to eat buckets of candy. Even if the candies are small, they still pack a high-calorie punch. So, what can we do with all that Halloween candy? And more importantly, what can we do with all those Halloween candy wrappers? We are all about finding ways to reduce, reuse and recycle…which is why getting creative with candy wrapper crafts is such a fun green living idea.
