The perfect solution for Halloween candy. Get the kids to decorate their envelopes (if you have one working on writing numbers this is also a great activity) and then have them put two (or how many you are comfortable with) pieces in each envelope. Open daily as a countdown to Thanksgiving (or for us Canadians, the end of November). This is brilliant!
