Tip of the Week: Happy Halloween!

Halloween can still be a great holiday for kids with Prader-Willi syndrome, even without the candy! Many families celebrate Halloween by dressing up and going trick or treating but with a twist. Some families switch the candy for a present at the end of the night and others allow for one piece a day for a few days or exchange one piece a day for one present a day. However you celebrate, make sure that you have fun and watch out for fast hands around the candy bowl!
