I heard the best idea for an advent calendar and thought I'd pass it on.
A friend of mine takes some of her kids' Halloween candy aside, and puts it in small decorated boxes or containers, one for each day of December. She uses a basket or large box to put them in, and on each day her kids open one small box each and have one piece of candy.
I love this idea simply because it is different, and somewhat crafty. It doesn't have to be a lot of work to set up - instead of using decorated boxes you could simply wrap each piece of candy with Christmas wrapping paper.
I think I'm going to try this next year (I'm too late this year ;-)
