Well, at least in this house it still does. Particularly the candy corn. T Rex does not like candy - not for lack of offering on our part. And T Rex Dad and I are still going strong on our New Year's resolutions to get and stay healthy and fit. We're getting a bit concerned about the upcoming birthday and holiday season, though. We are really trying to resist temptation.
So what to do with the left over candy corn???
We dumped it all into a bin, filled the bin with some of T Rex's small toys, and while Bebe Sister was napping, we let him go excavating in the candy looking for his toys. He had to use a spoon as his tool only tool.
This occupied him for at least 30-45 minutes. In toddler time - that's like 3-4 hours. It was awesome! Now this doesn't work if your child likes candy corn. But if you happen to have one like we do who refuses, then put that candy to use and take a break while your little one has a great time.
What happened to your left over candy???
(P.S. Thank you to everyone who left a comment on my last posting on Elimination Communication - I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to have so many kind comments. I have the best followers. Thanks again!)
