Tips for Halloween treating…


Be the change you want to see!  Join in with my TCOY (take care of you) philosophy and participate in my 5th Annual Tweak the Treat Community Event.   This is a fun post-Halloween community outreach that impacts lives of people you will never meet or see.  Share your excessive treats and write a note of appreciate to a soldier.  Care packages will receive around Thanksgiving.


TWEAK the TREAT is a fun Annual event for the entire family.  *Read my article.


*Head…change your thinking…and your kids memory of this holiday?

*Heart…gratitude!  The treats are the gift kids get to share with others.

*Body…get active and make some family time memories too.

Image Make this a family time by spending time doing simple activities.  When people bring in their excessive treats…they receive ACTIVITY PASSES from:  Tiger Rock Karate, Prairie Life Fitness, 360 Gymnastics, Monkey Bizness, Lil Monkey Bizness, and Cosmic Jump.


Sponsors include:

KC Whole Nutrition (Barbara Hamilton is a wealth of information!); Mannatech (nutritional supplements); Planet Beach Contempo Spa (Guest Pass); Quivira Crossing Vet Clinic (Dr. Cindy Taylor, keeping our 4-legged friends healthy); Grapes and Paints (fun art studio for all ages) and the Studio 56 (Diana Foster provides the note cards for the care-packages for our troops).

• Individual hot cocoa packets • Individual popcorn packets • Mini pretzel bags • 100% fruit leather • Whole grain cracker bags
