Then stash the capsule in a safe spot and open on the last day of school. No peeking! Find more clever ideas to get your kid excited about school here.

Learning doesn’t have to end as soon as the school day is over. For your child’s after-school snack, use cookie cutters to shape peppers into letters and numbers. Then, encourage your little one to practice their ABCs as they eat. Kids will love these after school snacks, too.
