Count down the days until Christmas with little paper envelopes, sized to hold all sorts of surprises: candy, tickets, tiny toys. - could place clues in the envelopes & the advent calendar becomes one big scavenger hunt -B
My advent calendar consists of 24 little houses made out of paper. They can be easily folded flat for storage. Could be an easy way to create an elaborate Christmas village that is easy to store but looks fantastic and festive.
