Leftover Halloween Candy for Christmas Countdown Calendar

Have your kids pick out 24 of their favorite candies from trick-or-treating. Make a Christmas countdown calendar (very simply made with a piece of cardboard, decorated with rubber stamps, scraps of wrapping paper, or giftwrap paper; tape each candy or treat on it).


When your kids finish their dinner each night, beginning with Dec. 1 through Dec. 24, they get to pick a treat from their own countdown calendar. It's fun to see how many spaces are left each night, and it really gets exciting to anticipate Christmas Eve as the board shows fewer and fewer treats!
