The past few years, I got my kids those Lego advent calendars which were great and everything. But this year, my kids are obsessed with Pokemon cards so I made a really easy and cheap version of my own.
The supplies were simple and all stuff I had around the house:
- 25 envelopes
- Numbered scrap paper
- rubber cement (reg. glue would work fine too)
- Pokemon cards (which I had bought for Christmas but decided to do this instead. I got a random lot of 100 off Amazon - those suckers are expensive in the stores)
I just cut out my numbers from the scrapbook paper and then glued them on the front of the envelopes.
I put two Pokemon cards in each envelope (one for each kid, each day).
Then I used a sponge and some water to seal them - because I don't lick envelopes. I'm a snob.
Then I just taped them around a door with regular old scotch tape.
It's a little festive. It's a little fun. It's a whole lot of cheap.
