    These are all great ideas! I love the fact that they don’t involve candy. I think kids get enough sweets throughout the year. Bookmarking this for next year! Thanks!

    What a great round up of ideas that don’t include candy. I dread the sugar laden holidays because it’s too easy for kids to go overboard and turn into unrecognizable spazzes! Plus, I don’t like the sugar for health reasons. I’m happy to find you via #SITSBlogging and I’ll be spending some time going through more of your posts!

      Thanks, Stephanie! We have been on a journey to eliminate as much sugar as possible–of course, we still have slip-ups, but I think it definitely has improved our health!
