I came up with this idea as I was waiting with my kids in line to see Santa. The line happened to pass by some candy dispensers – thank you very much mall organizing committee.  Sorry all you organic mamas out there, but this is what I did. I bought some Mike n’ Ikes to give my kids, but they weren’t just handed out.  They needed to be earned.  “How?” You ask. Whisper the alphabet, get a Mike n’ Ike.  Count to 100, a candy is yours.  Jump up and down 50 times in one place – well earned. Say three things you like about their siblings – score.  This can pass quite a lot of time.
