We had a great Halloween, and as usual my kids got tons of candy. And guess what do we do with all of it? Make a Christmas countdown chain! We did this last year, and I cannot for the life of me remember where I got the idea. But it cut our Halloween stash down so much that I knew it would be something we do year after year. And the kids loved doing the countdown each day in December.
Just start by rolling out a reallllly long piece of saran wrap, add pieces of candy, wrap them and tie a ribbon in between.
I just did it for the month of December (25 pieces), and it cut my kids Halloween candy stash down to 7 pieces each. Now that I can handle.
