The sweet season is upon us again! Starting with Halloween and continuing into December, this is the time of candy, cookies, cupcakes and other sugary goodness.
It may surprise you that Future of Dentistry is not totally opposed to sweets. Our staff have been known to give out candy to trick-or-treaters!
In fact, we’ll be participating in the Halloween celebration on Sunday, Oct. 30, 2-4 p.m., at Greenwood Plaza, located across the street from Future of Dentistry. It’s one of the great events planned for Wakefield’s four-day Haunted Happenings.
There’s nothing wrong with a little candy for a special occasion, but this is a great time to remind kids about proper brushing, flossing and mouth washing. It’s definitely the time of year to reinforce good habits!
If you’d like to give out something a little healthier that kids will still enjoy, here are some fun items:
- Pencils and erasers
- Mini crayon packs and mini coloring books
- Glow sticks, necklaces, etc.
- Kid-themed temporary tattoos
- Mini Play-Doh
- Bouncy balls, Slinkies, etc.
- Plastic vampire fangs, bugs/spiders, etc.
- Mini squirt guns
