One family does science experiments with leftover Halloween candy (found via Sac Bee). Watch the Nerds dissolve in water, check the acidity in Lemonheads, watch the edible ink on M&M's and Skittles float off — intact, and more. Sounds fun!

Here are six more ideas for getting rid of or using up the leftover Halloween candy.

What do you do? Take our poll.

  1. Save Lollipops for Bribery: Stash them in your purse or the pantry. It's true. My boys will do almost anything for a lollipop.
  2. Better Yet, Potty Training Bribery: CafeMom jess_diva says, "candy she accumulated in the half hour she trick or treated will be used as potty rewards." Hmmm, nothing else is working for my 3 year old...
  3. Toss It, Eat It, or Recycle It?: CafeMoms get pretty fired up in this debate.
  4. Donate Your Halloween Candy: Several organizations accept leftover Halloween candy and use them for a good cause.
  5. Save It for the Holiday Crafting: Use those Dots for your gingerbread houses and other craft projects.
  6. Make Peanut Butter Candy Bar Squares: Take this yummy dessert to share at your next potluck or party.
