Halloween Quickie

I was recently contacted by an associate from Health Partners and here is the email she sent me...

Halloween is a time for trick-or-treating, jack-o-lanterns, and.....cavities. Although Halloween is a favorite holiday for kids (like yours), you might not be too excited about the amount of candy they consume. As a blogger who covers parenting topics, I thought you might be interested in our healthy (and FUN!) alternatives to candy this Halloween.

To promote dental health and avoid the dental damages caused by sweet treats, employees of HealthPartners Dental Clinics will be handing out glow-in-the-dark Silly Bandz to trick-or-treaters that visit their homes. Silly Bandz, the colorful rubber bands in a variety of shapes that are worn as bracelets, are explosively popular among kids and teens right now. HealthPartners Dental Clinics offers other ideas for candy substitutes such as:

* Temporary tattoos
* Glow sticks
* Reflective Stickers
* Popcorn
* Play-Doh

Makes sense to me! Especially since my kiddos are a little too young for all that candy. So I have 3 pack of Halloween Silly Bandz to giveaway. I know you won't get these in time for Halloween, but when you give them to your kids, you could maybe have a chat about how the Silly Bandz are better than all the Halloween candy they just got! So if you want to win one of the 3 packs, here's what you do:

1. Tell me what your favorite thing about Halloween is!

I'll only keep this open til Halloween, and then announce the winners on Halloween, as it only seems appropriate! Good luck!


  1. My favorite thing about Halloween has got to be the decorations and costumes. Theres nothing cooler than checking out other peoples decorations and saying I can do better lol

  2. My favourite thing is seeing the kiddies all dressed up and soo excited..karasceviour at hotmail dot com

  3. My favorite thing is the movies! I love watching all those scary movies and being scared on purpose lol.

    What a cool thing! How did they know you were a blogger? :D

  4. I'd have to say my favorite thing about Halloween is the candy my boys don't like because I like it! On the other end, I don't like Halloween here in MN because you always have to wear a coat over your costume so no one can really tell what you are.

  5. My favorite thing is to have a halloween party and watching scary movies
