Genius or Disaster?
I love Halloween - you might even say I'm fanatical about it. As it approaches, it's more difficult for me to avoid buying glossy magazines with pumpkins on the cover. My hate and envy for Martha Stewart gets kicked into overdrive.
It will come as no surprise to you that I've noticed all of the Halloween themed goodies that will be available for the next several weeks. I saw the most delightful thing at Costco, but I'm not sure it's a good idea. It's 80 small cans of Play Doh to give away to trick-or-treaters. My thinking is "Wonderful! It's a toy!" But will the kids feel screwed out of candy? Aren't they already getting enough candy? Do kids even play with Play-Doh anymore?
I think I'm going to have to supplement the Play-Doh with candy. But, parents, I need to know if your kids will like the Play-Doh, or come back in the night with eggs.
