Wondering what to do with all of those candy wrappers left over from trick-or-treating? Rather than adding all those individual wrappers to the trash, turn them into art! Open candy carefully as to not rip (easier said then done amidst the excitement), then have children glue onto white paper. Arrange in patterns, by color or flavor and viola- new placemats! Laminate both sides so they wipe clean easily. These are certain to provide incentive for the littles to clean their plate!
