This morning as I'm slowly rolling out of bed to start my day I overhear Matt Lauer say GOOD MORNING ON THIS THURDAY DECEMBER 1st.....WHAT!!!! It's already December!!!! And I realized I...in my crazy busy life...forgot to make the kids advent calendar this year...what the what! So after i dropped the kids off at school I had to channel my inner Martha Stewart and get my craft on...all I knew it it has to be cute..easy..and with materials I already had in my craft "room". ....so here is what I came up with...and if you are like me and slipped into December in a daze...then I promise you can takle this in a jiff...and your kiddos will love it!!!
|I took a bunch of business envelopes cut them in half.|
|12 envelopes to be exact...|
|Tape the unsealed side with some invisible tape|
|Decorate the front with a christmas-y decal|
|With a puncher ..punch out a lil tag and write a lil "to do"|
|Include a lil treat for each bambino (none for Mateo..not yet)|
|Line them in order..hole punch the corners...string them on some twine or cute xmas-y ribbon|
