Monday Make-Itz

It's not too late to make a simple Advent Calendar/Count down to Christmas.
I 'scraplifted' this idea from MarthaStewart.com, so I will give those designers the credit.
It's a very simple idea made with envelopes.
However, here are a few more ideas I came up with:
If different sizes of envelopes aren't available, just use what is.
Papercrafting paper could also be folded into envelopes. Another idea would be to use white envelopes and have the young people color and draw on each one. Add numbers 1-24.

Easy Advent Calendar

Our simplest Advent calendar to date, this is a minimalist take on the holiday tradition: Form the shape of a Christmas tree with envelopes in various sizes, and mark each with adhesive numbers. Stuff them with thin, lightweight presents, such as gift cards and stickers. Use painters' tape to secure the envelopes to the wall.
