      Cute idea to count down to Thanksgiving and ration out the Halloween candy so your kids don't live on a sugar rush for three weeks straight!

      Surprise Calendar: place review questions, questions of the day, etc. So fun and adorable. (paper cups and tissue paper? easy and cheap for a bit of learning and fun. :D)

      advent calendar - Simply take some small paper cups, fill each with a piece of candy (break into that Halloween candy stash), cover each cup with a glued square of tissue paper, attach all to a foam board and voila! Your Happy Buddies will have so much fun punching through the tissue paper each day to reveal a little treat

      Question of the Day Calendar..small paper cups, a backboard to hold them, and numbered pieces of tissue paper to cover them. Could do a writing prompt for each day... Love the idea for Christmas countdown - or to let each person know why you are thankful for them for Thanksgiving - with a note for each day! Could be an Advent calender activity.
