If you have younger kids, around Christmastime, it seems the 'Elf on the Shelf' consumes you. Oh wait, it actually is. I use ours as a bargaining tool and a way for my son to behave. No shame. Guess what? You can do the same thing around Halloween with 'Switchcrafted." This witch acts just like that sneaky elf. 

 

Switchcrafted comes with a Switch Witch who acts similar to the Elf on the Shelf. She comes with a storybook, legend and a way for your kids to part with their candy stash.

 

The legend of the Switch Witch is that, in order to complete a spell, she needs candy to complete the ultimate spell: The Candy Spell. When the kids want, they can trade in their candy for a spell.

 

The cool part about this "game" around Halloween is that there's something in it for parents. On the Switchcrafted website, parents can find information about candy donations, healthy snack alternatives, games and more. Plus, there's an app coming soon.

 

Are you willing to add to your holiday "to-do" list with something like this?
