How can money be cheaper than a sugary treat? Because kids don’t know the value of it. Ask anyone under 5 years of age if they would rather have two pennies or one quarter.
They’ll pick the pennies every time. Wrap up the amount you choose in a bit of Halloween plastic wrap tied with a ribbon, or just put all your change in a big bucket and dole it out, reaching into the container like you’re Donald Trump. The kids won’t know the difference.
