DIY: Make A Last-Minute Holiday Activity Advent Calendar Using Recycled Envelopes

I used reusable adhesive tabs to attach each of the envelopes to the wall in our dining room. I transferred them from the floor to the wall in the exact same layout, resulting in a fun colorful tree!
I had a lot of leftover scrap-booking number stickers that were never used, I decided these would be perfect for labeling each of my envelopes – randomly 1-25.
I used pieces of leftover scrap-booking paper cut into smaller rectangles and leftover stationary to write 25 fun holiday activities that my family could do together during December. In case you need some ideas, here are my 25:
Once you have written each of your activities on a piece of paper, slip it inside an envelope, and seal it. I plan each activity ahead of time – that way my son will open the correct envelope for a day that we have time to do that particular activity.
Enjoy celebrating the entire month of December with fun family activities! This is a great way to really get the most out of December.
