Halloween is on the way and with it comes an over abundance of candy.  With how the holiday falls this year Alleigh, Kaelyn, and Willow will be trick-or-treating twice which means double the candy.  Of course the girls are absolutely thrilled about this, but like many parents we choose to limit their candy intake.  In addition to limiting the amount of candy our girls eat we also do not allow them to eat anything with red food dye.  I always feel like a mean mommy when we purge their haul of everything containing red40 because it unfortunately is in a lot of candy.  But this year I discovered something that would actually make this process fun for the girls.  I’m sure you think I’ve lost my marbles, but just trust me and allow me to introduce you to The Sugar Goblin.

Sugar Goblin BoxThe Sugar Goblin reminds me a bit of Elf on a Shelf, but with a Halloween twist.  Plus this cute little goblin isn’t keeping an eye on the kids to make sure they behave and reporting back to a fat guy in a red suit… honestly, isn’t that creepier than a goblin? Hehe.  Each kit comes with a story book and adorable green plush goblin.

The Sugar Goblin

When the Sugar Goblin first appeared in our house he made himself at home on our fireplace mantle.  Just out of reach of little fingers, but somewhere they would definitely notice his presence.

As soon as my big girls arrived home from school they immediately spotted our house guest and wanted to read his story.  Dustin read the book out loud which filled us in on everything we would need to know about the Sugar Goblin.  It turns out this cute little creature survives on candy, but there is also an entire village of Sugar Goblin’s who need candy much more than my kiddos need cavities, hehe.

Since we invited him into our home the rest of the month is going to be filled with fun tricks and pranks from our new friend.  And gosh he is off to a good start.  We found him stuck in a jar inside the refrigerator… Alleigh and Kaelyn think he was looking for candy in the kitchen.  He also turned all the pictures in the bathroom sideways.  One evening he put on a pumpkin mask while hanging from a curtain rod.  And he even found a recorder to play a little tune.  I’m betting Sugar Goblin parents think those are just as annoying as human parents!  I can only imagine what he will get into next… if you follow along on Instagram I’m sure I’ll be sharing more of his adventures.

But at some point all of his pranks will come to an end when the girls give him some treats for all those tricks he played.  Once trick-or-treating has been completed we will encourage the girls to sort through all of their candy removing everything that has red food dye along with some more sweets.  That evening they will place their candy next to the Sugar Goblin so he can take it back to his village to feed his friends and family.

In return he will leave them a small gift as a token of his appreciation for sharing their Halloween candy.  I think our little Sugar Goblin will be leaving some fun activity and coloring books along with new crayons and markers.  Perhaps some new earrings or fun socks too!
